Windows 7: Grapics card help!!!

Grapics card help!!!

hello
i have this very old graphics card and it uses a very special adapter for the monitor
so instead of looking all over for a converter i thought i could just identify what type of video card this is and find an old enough motherboard to support this.

Could anyone help me by identifying the TYPE of video card and tell me what Type of motherboard what support this???

note: i counted and there are 42 pins coming off the card
see the attachments

thanks for the help
its crucial as i am setting up a pos system.

Unless I am mistaken (I will double check) this is an ISA standard video card. Old. You would have to go back as far as a Socket 7 motherboard to find one with an ISA slot to use. The ISA slots are mostly colored black. I can post some pictures if that would help?

Cheers!

I seem to recall one of our members from "down under" saying he had a shed full of old systems like that. Something about "what to do with old computers". All I can remember.

It's a ISA slot card...man very old. ISA slots are long black slots, about 50% longer, with big looking pin fins.

Products - Micropower

On the very left is the ISA, then the PCI, then PCIe 1x, then PCIe 16x?

This board is a ASUS P3C-E, with a 933 MHz Pentium 3, Slot One. The ISA slot is at the end of the board, and there is also one of my ISA video cards for comparison.

Why the need for a POS system?
That is going to be a really sweet DOS/Windows 3.1 machine? OS/2?
Where's Vesa Local Bus when you need it? (nerdherder joke)
