Now That's An All-In-One Card

I've mentioned before my penchant for pulling apart old systems to find useful parts from them for my spare-parts stash. I got an old Compaq Prosignia machine and found this beast inside:

I can't find the manual for this thing, but from what I can tell, this is an ATI Rage IIC video card, an Intel Server network card, and an LSI SCSI card, all on one full length PCI card. Pretty much everything in the system was plugged into this card. I don't know if the PCI slots on this motherboard were 66mhz or 64 bit or anything (I seriously doubt it), but I can only imagine the bottleneck this thing caused on the PCI bus.

I'll hunt down some more info about it later. Right now, I'm headed to COWPU.
