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 firstname.lastname@example.org it will get to me faster!!
Many, many thanks!
