I think there is a fair chance that the company would be willing to work
with you if there are issues. So far I know of people using various
cards from Acard on Macs, Suns, and SGIs without a single glitch for

If you don't want to spend a lot of money, just wait for one of the
cards to be on ebay. Not always cheap, but my UW-SCSI Acard was $25.
At the moment there is one 7720UW from a seller named 55trucker that
looks like it might possibly go for a similar price.

BTW, sorry to be so long in replying. classiccmp goes to a seperate
folder and I don't get around to reading it all that frequently.
