I'm sure I have one here somewhere. I kept it to test old machines but don't think I ever used it.  I'll attempt to locate it.

Let me see.... 56k modem... serial card...  28.8k modem... ahh here we are, video cards... AGP... no... PCI... no older still.... looks like the oldest I got is a VL-Bus card! (the ISA extension).  Dude! That is some seriously old tech!  Good luck with your search Smile
