Hello.
I have built a computer with the following specs.
CPU: Intel Core i5 10500 1200 3.1GHz with integrated graphics.
Motherboard: Gigabyte H410 HD3P.
OS: Kali Linux with Gnome GUI.
What graphics card drivers should I install?

Don't know a lot about your chosen distribution but in general if you have kernel 5.** intel graphic drivers should be in it

You shouldn't need to install any graphics card. It should automatically pick up the Intel graphics. An inxi output would look similar to this:

Code:
Graphics:
  Device-1: Intel Xeon E3-1200 v2/3rd Gen Core processor Graphics 
  vendor: Dell driver: i915 v: kernel bus ID: 00:02.0 
  Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.11 driver: modesetting 
  unloaded: fbdev,vesa resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz 
  OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 2500 (IVB GT1) 
  v: 4.2 Mesa 21.0.3 direct render: Yes

It has already loaded the driver you need, see the part I highlighted in bold.

To make it abundantly clear, and to add to @f33dm3bits reply, this means there's no driver for you to install. Even under advanced driver installation dialogues, there's not going to be an alternative driver. When you go to install proprietary drivers, you're system will look (this is in Mint) similar to this:

And that's a good thing. It means you don't have to mess around with proprietary drivers, DKMS, or anything like that. You'll get full functionality without having to do anything - including having access to max refresh rates and screen resolutions.

If you're not a gamer, it's awesome.

I agree with both @f33dm3bits & @KGIII

I have a 4th gen I5 with integrated graphics and it uses the same driver,
