I haven't seen any notices in the client but I haven't been able to get work for the last few months.

In the last few projects, my card was holding its own against newer cards.

Due to the market supply chain being impacted I can't upgrade my GPU anytime soon.

Any ideas?

Yes. Update the Windows BOINC application from your current Version 7.16.11 to Version 7.16.20, and then retry.
More details at this Retvari Zoltan's post and around.

I have updated to version 7.16.20 on the Windows hosts and it seems to be working well.

I finally got a work unit but the initial estimation of completion was 26 DAYS.

It's 83% complete after 32 hours, I suspect it will be done in less than 48 hours.

Where did 26d come from?

You will always get an outlandish expected completion on any task run with a brand new app. BOINC has no idea how long it will take until you complete and report 10 validated tasks with the new app.

Only then can BOINC establish a valid APR rate for the host and show realistic completion times.
