    W7. This PC had 2 X Nvidia Quadro NVS 285 Graphic Cards. One became faulty so I removed it. I cannot find a driver upgrade site. So I consider getting a compatible Graphic Card or two new ones. Any advise, please ?. Thank you.

    Other than the fact your computer has 2 very weak performing NVIDIA Quadro NVS 285 graphic cards, we know nothing else about it.

    The following information would be helpful:
    Brand name and model name and model number of your computer - if it's a factory brand one
    Brand name and model number of the motherboard - if your computer is a self built one
    Detailed description of its processor
    Detailed description of its power supply

    You appear to have a HP xw4400 WorkStation desktop which has an Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 2.66 GHz processor.

    These are the listed entry and mid-range and high-end graphic card upgrades for it.

    It appears to have a 475W power supply. (y)

    You can find used ones on Ebay , saw a Dell NVidia Quadro FX 4500 for $34 He has a PCI Express (PCIe) x16 graphics slot and a PCIe x16 (x4) slot, Do you have two monitors? The (PCIe) x16 is the fastest slot.

    The 2 "high end" graphic cards that are listed at the support site for that HP xw4400 WorkStation desktop have very weak performance scores.

    Personally, I would go with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 or 740 graphic card.

    It's too bad that desktop doesn't have a better performing processor.
