Late this afternoon I bit the bullet and ordered a new graphics card.
I ordered a 4GB MSI GTX 1050TI.

I hope it fits straight into the PCI-E slot on my M/B. Usually I research parts to the nth degree before I buy them but this time I just picked one. I hope I haven't made a mistake.

Thanks for all the comments. They were greatly appreciated.

Yeah shouldn't have any problems fitting that card, and it would be a improvement from your previous card.

A final update.

I fitted the new graphics card when it arrived, and all is well.
Also, after removing the old card I noticed it was slightly bowed in the middle. I suspect it might have over heated at some stage.

I have this same bowing or sagging with the video card in my main rig, due to the weight of the cooler I suspect. It's a concern to me but I've read somewhere a while back it's not something to be worried about.

Just for fun you could take the cooler off your old card, but make sure to wear eye protection. You might find something like this:

I'm surprised a new GPU fixed it
I honestly thought it was due to the amount of shortcuts on the taskbar
