I have several very old HP xw8400 workstation/servers. One has 3 separate Windows 10 Pro boot drives which I manually connect to as needed. While doing Windows updates one of them got totally corrupted and is unrecoverable. The confirmed problem I'm having is that it is no longer possible to fresh install of Windows 10 with a Radeon 5450 card (yes - even the vendor gave up). I run a VGA KVM as well as DVI/HDMI to a Dell U3011 high resolution monitor and sometimes other monitors.

The 5450 is in the PCI Express X16 slot but I want/need something else. I don't currently play games or have requirements for high FPS. I'm thinking a fanless 2GB GeForce GT 710 is the best budget solution (~$50) since it should be compatible with this old slot. Thoughts for this triple output card or a better pick?
