They do degrade after years of heavy use. Just like a car.

Makes sense. Does anyone have a recommendation on what to replace it with? I don't really need to upgrade performance.

What card do you currently have? Which version of the 755 do you have (mini tower, desktop, etc.)? What's your budget?

Once we have those answers we can match you up.

It's an NVIDIA Quadro NVS 290. The computer is a desktop model, and I'd like to spend $100 max, if possible. I don't think Iy should take anything fancy. This computer will never be used for gaming or video.
