I used to use a IIE and a IIGS but it has been many years. Last week in a burst of nostalgia I purchased a ROM 3 IIGS on ebay. Now I am looking to upgrade it and had a few questions:
At some point I plan on purchasing a accelerator card (Zip, TransWarp, etc), a hard drive, a RAM card and an ethernet card. With that in mind:
1. I am looking at three Hard Drive /Mass Storage Controllers they are the:
- CFFA Card
- Focus Card
- SSH Microdrive Turbo with 2.5 inch drive
- An old Applied Ingenuity
Can you give me a first and second choice of what you would pick (given the above preferred configuration)? I understand that most of these products do not support DMA, but I also understand that you can't use DMA with some accelerators. Anything I should watch out for?
Similarly, I am looking at at the following RAM cards:
- RAM-4-GS (Gaber board????)
- Sirius 8MB
- AE GS RAM Ultra 7MB
Can you give me a first and second choice for these as well? Any gotchas I should be worried about?
Any help you guys can provide would be much appreciated. Feel free to post here, but if you wouldn't mind sending an email to it will get to me faster!!
Many, many thanks!
