I hear you. Finding compatible hardware is bad.

I wish more people would use it but I've not
uploaded anything myself in quite a while; NYCBUG
has what they call a dmesgd, a dmesg database and
query interface for *BSD on *Hardware.;SQLIMIT=20

Now days video is on board, but I still check for
video cards when I see a junked PC.  And since your
needs, maybe easiest to buy up the old cards from a
used/repair PC shop.
