Power Book 5300c

Do I need to buy? (they have them on ebay) a FOCUS Ethernet/16 bit video card for my 5300 video screen, if I am not going to use a monitor or the ethernet. Ial ready have a Macwireless card installed. Thank-You for any help. I know this a old system, but I love it and it is fine for what I do. Thanks again....... Tom

In a word, no.

Your 5300 is already capable of sending signal to an external monitor. There's a monitor port on the back. The Focus card will replace this port with a comination video/Ethernet port.

The Focus card only adds Ethernet capability to the 5300 series. I use it myself and I love it, but if you don't need Ethernet, you don't need this card.
