Video card for 15Khz arcade monitors

This card looks like a good addition to a Maker made retro MAME cabinet, it runs classic games in their native 15Khz – “Connect your 15Khz arcade cabinet monitor to your PC with NO special configuration or special driver software in either DOS or Windows. Now you can also connect an ordinary PC monitor and get all the resolutions of the 15Khz monitor plus conventional higher Windows resolutions.” [via] – Link.

    This card is truly amazing, and Andy (the guy who runs the site) is very friendly and helpful.

    I had a little trouble getting Windows to detect my particular arcade monitor, but a short email, and a few resistors on the monitor cable, and I was Mame’ing up a storm in my original arcade cabinet.
