    Default Wanted: ATI Small Wonder or EGA Wonder card

    Looking for a Small Wonder or EGA wonder card for my 5150, I don't really care which one as long as it works. The ones on ebay are WAY overpriced so I wanted to see if anyone on here had one laying around that I could buy.

    How about a Paradise Autoswitch 480?

    Will that one display cga on a 5151 monochrome monitor? That's my goal with one of those two cards.

    I don't have a 5151 so I can't test it to see if it does.

    I can't find any specs on the card so I can't be certain either

    Edit: I just found a period ad for that card and it says it will support EGA monochrome mode. Will that do the trick? Most of the games I'd want to play are CGA, not sure if they have an EGA or EGA monochrome mode

    Sounds like you really only need a Small Wonder (or Graphic Solution)

    Atta boy, Mike, let go of some of that stuff. I'm sure your price for the SWGS is way more reasonable than eBay. Probably even better than my price for it.

    Another good option I found was the Video-7 short card (there is also a long card version). It works fine in my IBM5155 in either EGA or CGA mode and has a handy graphics & text test untility too.
