Hello everyone!

I have a Powermac 8100 laying around that I am toying with getting running with OS 7.6 and was wondering what video card I should get for it? The system is obviously NUBUS so what are good (CHEAP) options for the system? I have to get it out of the garage, but I believe that it might already have one of the Apple AV cards in it.

Thanks everyone!!!

Even though it is NuBus, likely the fastest video card for that system is the Apple HPV PDS video card, which was specially made for the 8100 and did not go into a NuBus slot.

The Apple AV card goes into the same PDS slot, but is actually slower than the HPV card in terms of displaying computer video.
