Looking for a couple of bits for my XT.

Video card with both VGA and EGA/CGA connectors and switches on the back to select monitor type. Can be 8 or 16 bit ISA (a lot of these work in 8-bit slots regardless). Alternatively an EGA-only card will do but it needs to be switchable for a CGA monitor (ie. low res modes only).

IBM Microdrive compact flash, fancy using one of these instead of a normal CF card :D

Thanks

I hope you find the video card you need. I've just about got my XT where I want it.

If you're not married to the IBM brand, you should search eBay for Seagate Microdrive. I have a few 5GB ones and I'm using one of them in my XT as the primary drive.

Good luck!

*EDIT* You can see my XT build in the following link. One picture shows the Seagate drive, even though it's not plugged into the CF slot.
