Hi! One configuration for an absolute best experience for Windows 3.1x is tricky, I think.
I'm not saying it's impossible, though.
It's just.. The ET4000AX, among other cards, is supported natively by QuickTime, but hasno GDI accelerator, no special video acceleration.
It also has no YUV conversation, perhaps no DCI drivers (the Video for Windows release from ELSA supported DCI).
And it's limited to lower resolutions. The Trio series supports high resolutions and colour depths,
but these get into the way with classic applications that want 640x480 @256c. And the drivers are 386 Enhanced-Mode only.
Then there's the Trident 8900D. It has a soft-font mechanism, is quick etc, but doesn't have GDI acceleration.
Then there's the Paradise Professional VGA. Ancient, quick, compatible. Has SVGA drivers for Real and Standard-Mode of Windows 2.x/3.x.
However, the physical cards do only have 256KB installed usually. Sure, they could be upgraded to 512KB piggy-back style..
But the drivers don't expect this. Old pre-Win3.1 drivers may only support 640x400 in 256c or 800x600 in 16c.
Edit: There are many more models, of course. I'm just a bit sleepy right now, can't remember. CT&T, OAK, Video Seven ?
