      I can second that the card guides are from Processor Tech. I pulled a
      ProcTech motherboard out of one of my systems and it had those same guides.

      The motherboard is actually for sale on the VCGM at the moment. I'll throw
      in the guides if anyone buys it and mentions them.

      I've seen the same card guides in the ALTAIR at the March Museum in the
      InfoAge Science Center. We were working with this several months ago
      together with the owner who donated it to the museum. He said it was a
      retrofit kit that was made back then by Processor Tech. It bought that
      along with their VDM-1 video card which was also included in the donation.

      It does appear to be several 3rd party cards in there, judging from the
      pcb style and parts. It's hard to distinguish which kind from looking at
      the edges.
