Re: CoCoVGA upgrade

So got both D32 and D64 and only one CocoVGA - which one to upgrade and to make it more interesting to the D64 I also have the Dragon 200E lower-case daughterboard which haven't mounted yet. While it's two totally different boards, would it make since to have both cards in the D64?
