Tulip card is cheap enough to be comparable with any ISA Ethernet card.
However, PCI slot is precious.  I've one system with 1 VGA PCI card,
2 SCSI PCI cards, and 1 tulip PCI card, ie. all PCI slots occupied.  
When I have to insert one more network to build up another ethernet 
segment, I've to search for more than a week for cheap cheap ISA VGA 
card from 2nd hand stores.  Actually, I got a few more ISA VGA cards 
under my drawer, in case I need yet another PCI slot!
