The IIci in my humble opinion, was (is) the best Macintosh Apple ever made. I have three of these machines right now, and they all work like champs.
The IIci is indeed faster than the IIsi, although the IIsi has some sound imput capabilities the IIci doesn't. You can find all kinds of older NuBus video cards to put in the expansion slots, as well as older NuBus networking cards if you ever need to use the machine as any kind of server.

The IIci has the bad habit of using first bank of SIMMs (400k?) for video if you don't have a video card. I found one for $5 sitting in closet.

There use to be SCSI card on NuBus. Someone had a NuBus RAM card. Ethernet of course.

If you are interested in MacII Video Card - Portrait Display Video Card - never used (thought maybe my Centris 650 could - not).

Low-end Mac is a good site with a lot of resource information.

email me if want to look at the card - I almost threw it out.
