I am going to increase the performence of display of my 6100/66.
Could 6100/66s get 1024*879 with 24 bit color?
Please tell me what kind of card I need and which one you recommend?

1024 x 879?  What planet are you from?
1024 x 768 , and 1152 x 870 are standard screen resolutions .
My 6100/66 is running a 19" trinitron monitor at 1024 x 768.
I could run it at 1152 x 870, but everything is just too darn small
I use a Radius 8XJ accelerated 8-bit card, and it works great.
For 24-bit color on a 6100 you will need a radius Precisioncolor ProXK.
The "K" at the end means it is a sub 7" card that will fit in a 6100.
Or you could get a standard 24 bit card and simply remove your internal
hard drive to an external case to make room for it.
This is all based on the assumption that you can find a 6100 NUBUS adapter
card that works and that you can afford.

Shreve Systems used to have a monopoly on these, but recently they have
showed up at some of the other parts places.
Try these webpages for NUBUS adapters ( and video cards in some cases ):

" They hunted till darkness came on, but they found
Not a button, or feather, or mark,
By which they could tell that they stood on the ground
Where the Baker had met with the Snark.

In the midst of the word he was trying to say,
In the midst of his laughter and glee,
He had softly and suddenly vanished away -- -
For the Snark *was* a Boojum, you see."
