    All of the 8-bit VGA cards are fairly slow (the Hercules one in particular is not only slow but also has some compatibility problems). Most 16-bit-ISA VGA cards that work in 8-bit ISA systems are faster than the 8-bit-ISA VGA cards, because they had later chipsets and faster RAM.

    Is there a reason you need an 8-bit-ISA VGA card only? The only reason I can think of is if you have a crowded motherboard with tall components under the area where the extra fin of a 16-bit card would physically go.
