I now have a full DS10 courtesy of a work DS10 with a failed main logic board that I saved from the recycler and transplanted my DS10-L MLB into. So as long as my HPe hobbyist licenses work I'm going to get a workstation going again. HP VMS V8.4 patched up as far as HPe hobby downloads allowed.
I have the following VMS compatible video cards; all but the last were used successfully on a PWS workstation. In order of original cost and capability levels:
Elsa GLoria 8MB
Powerstorm 300 PCI
Monitor will be a 1280x1024 to start (I don't think these support 1600x1200 or widescreen). I'd need a PowerStorm 350 for 1600x1200 or 1920x1200 widescreen.
Hoping for snappy scrolling, clean window moves and resizes, no lagging like the old VAXstation when it got busy, etc.
Which one (or which pair if I can do dual screen) would be best?
