Today i had the opportunity to buy two EISA VGA cards.
This was not really planed, i was interested by some ISA network cards, and the seller also presented me two EISA VGA cards.
After an hesitation, i finally bought them. Half because i wanted an early 90's system and half because they were not crazy expensive...
But i'm not really familiar with this era (was too young, i'm more familiar with mid/late 90's stuff)
I started to look for motherboards, (mostly Compaq boards) but i don't really know what to look for and what to avoid.
I have no immediate need for such a system, so i can wait a bit until i finally gathered the stuff.
But since i'm out of my comfort zone, i would love some advice (Brands, what to avoid, prices ranges)
Or should i just sell the cards and look for ISA / VLB system instead ?
