I want to know what you guys think are the best legacy video solutions. What's the best card you have in your collection?

For now I seem to be a big fan of the TSENG ET4000W32i/p chipsets. They seem to do pretty well in dos. But when in windows, I'm an ATi kind of guy.

The best cards I own are 2MB mach 64 VRAM cards for ISA and VLB. But, I also really like my Hercules Dynamite with the ET4000W32P and 2MB DRAM.

Any of you guys ever done extensive benchmarking on graphics cards?

I didn't do any benchmarking, but I have a Tseng ET4000AX for sale on ebay and it was pretty good.
I have basically my wehole computer collectiojn for sale on ebay, see hjere fpr detilas: http://search.ebay.de/_W0QQsassZmf0390QQhtZ-1

However, I don't kow anything about VLB. I never messed around with VLB.

Selling it all? That's a real pity.

Yes. I need the money for college, so I decided to try to sell as much of it as I can.

The best cards for speed are usually high end oddities like my Cornerstone ISA graphics accellerator. On some hi end (pentium class) windows games everything flies full frame rate until something gets too large then it slows down to the speed of the ISA trident cards I know and love. The card only works with my cornerstone monitor though at 1600x1280.

I also have an oddball SGI ISA graphics card that would probably be pretty sweet, 1.5mb VRAM and an 89 date code but alas its 9pin and I have no idea what it attaches to.

My Flight 486/100 is currently running a Western Digital Paradise SVGA card with 512K VRAM. I got it to work with my Packard Bell TV Tuner Card, hence why I swapped it out froma Trident TVGA-9000i (no connector on the trident to hook up the TV Tuner card)
