Hi guys, looking for advice on this, yes, I know, its an old board, yes, I should upgrade, etc, etc.

But please indulge an old time amiga user, can anyone here give me a list of what I can use in that PCI slot? What works? what doesn't?

I would love to get USB 2.0 working on it, however reading some old threads, I wasn't able to work out if the problems with the EHCI driver had been fixed to allow USB 2.0 to work.
If it has been fixed, which low profile card would be recommended?

I believe a graphics card is still a no no though, so I am limited there.

SATA/Hard drives Card?

Any advice on this topic, greatly appreciated

I did use a PATA-Pci Card, then a gigabit ethernet card and finaly a SATA card.

Never got any chance with USB2 cards, but the SATA card had an external port so I could plug external harddrive.

Maybe you can plug a catweasel card if there is a need for oldskool stuff.

I tried many different USB2 cards, I never had any success.
I'm not saying it can't be done, just that mine never went there.
