I don't know about prices in Denmark, but it seems to me that the
best choice would be to upgrade your software! That would be cheaper
than replacing your video least in Dallas, Texas, USA.

Trying to run any older software on Windows 95 is asking for
problems... especially when dealing with outmoded drivers and control
files. PageMaker 6.5 is out an upgrade price of $99 US here.
Video cards (decent ones) are going to be $150 or more. And the newer
software is just so much easier to use under Win 95.

Just two cents worth on a Sunday morning....
