okay, you are talking about an ultra5 box with UltraSparcIIi cpus (usually 333Mhz or
400MHz). ultra10 is the same mainboard as the ultra5, but you can put a creator3d gfx
card into the box (great hardware 6 years ago).
ultra5 has a pgx24 card onboard, we usually run them with pgx32 in the pci slot.
-> way too slow now for 24bit gfx (ok for 8bit gfx). the newer pgx64 is not much
better (same speed) then the pgx32 (24bit), but it has some more mem on the board.
the ultra10 usually came with a creator3d card (like the ultra60).
