motherboard for windows98se with ISA slot with DMA

10 posts in this topic

I need an ATX motherboard with ISA slots which allow DMA it must also support windows 98se. This pc will only have one program and one ISA card installed. Used is fine but I would prefer a new one. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

First few results in a google search:

The ISA card requires Direct Memory Access.

I am not sure to understand. :unsure:

AFAICR it's not the card that needs ISA DMA; it's the "slot" or "bus", i.e. if a motherboard has a ISA bus and an ISA card slot it also has ISA DMA. :blink:

ISA Motherbords are still manufactured. Like these. But you must search for industrial PC's. And they have a corresponding price.

I got the BCM875PLG mobo and it works wonderfully, but it cost me a nice chunk of money. Its DMA is not exactly great, fair bit of devices I got have problems on it and there seems nothing to do about it unfortunately, but it is among the most powerful boards with ISA with working DMA.
