Hello Ben,

We started out with the same specs on our first 20 terminals. We used
the rom-o-matic boot floppies. The existing video cards were 2MB. We
added 8mb pci video cards to them and it made a huge difference.  I just
did a quick google and I see they are still selling for about 24.00.
Look for Jaton Trident 9880 8MB PCI.
