I think I have one of those but in 250GB, I've bought an external HDD enclosure and to my surprised it turned out to be IDE with a WD2500.

From a kringloopwinkel you mean? 😊
I went to those for years but stopped after they started putting all the money in their own pockets, sadly. Going to Beverwijk tomorrow, probably nothing interesting to see but at least the food is decent, I saw an old Compaq Armada laptop there a month ago for €5 but passed on it as it had no power adapter and these might be a b....ch to find (voltages like 18,5 or 19,5V).

Not a WORKING Gigabyte card???!!!

(Gigabytch as I like to call them have not been kind to me over the years. 😁 )

I have quite a few gigabyte cards in my collection - all working.

Ah, that's in my area! Going to Noppes? Looking for something specific? They have their cables there pretty wel sorted.

Bought this WD 80 GB drive, which finally accepted Windows 98 as its companion 😀 I already had the same one, but with SATA interface, and that just wouldn't work at all (installation hang at the end).

JBs with 8MB cache were always the nicest.

All hail the Great Capacitor Brand Finder

Yah, 2 in RAID 0 will pretty much saturate an ATA-133 bus, so performance doesn't get any better for PATA machines, well apart from latency and seek time slowdowns, but the larger cache takes the sting out of that.

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.

Not all IBM Deskstar drives suck. AFAIK only the ones manufactured during a relatively short period around 1999-2000. The later, larger drives work entirely fine.

Right, the later Hitachis were some cheap/fast/good unicorns, I have ones of those too, but the one I was referring to was definitely in the ballpark, because it's a 30GB, so too bigs to be much earlier, too small to be much later. I will check the exact dates on it when it resurfaces.

Can't for the life of me figure why Hitachi bought the business and kept the model name, that's like starting a whole new submarine sandwich chain and getting Jared Fogle as your spokesman when he gets out of prison.

You lost me when you removed the shrink wrap and opened it. NIB adds to the value, but only if sealed 😀

See my graphics card database at www.gpuzoo.com
Constantly being worked on. Feel free to message me with any corrections or details of cards you would like me to research and add.

When someone finds out what it is, i'll post more pictures and maybe tell you how much I paid for it...

Now test it please.
It came bundle with a Gigabyte motherboard and according to the manual one is required. I've also seen it for sale but the motherboard requirement made me skip it.

You don't have to be all that exact on voltage for most laptops. Some will even run off 12V but not charge battery. One of those Targus universal supplies will pretty much run everything up to modern era where they start having coded PSUs. Only caveat is, watts, if it wants a 95W supply, expect it to blow up a 65W one.

3D1 is a dual 6600GT right? I've looked for one before but never found it. I guess there more rare than I expected.

Mine is missing the metal shroud.

Here's a pic of the card w/o it's cooler:

It seems to work in any gigabyte nforce 4 SLi motherboard.

I like how closely the cooler resembles their CPUs' stock coolers.

Is it actually limited to gigabyte boards or is it the SLI chipset that's important ?

Oh wow, that's really interesting! I have a couple of i740s and neither have fans, let alone unique looking "Intel" fans. I don't recall ever hearing about an "overclocked" model of the i740, so I'm not sure why anyone would have added beefier cooling.

Now for some blitting from the back buffer.

I had one exactly like this, so maybe Intel went the extra mile with these. All other I saw without fan were from other brands.

Pretty much what I was thinking also, they put that chip on motherboards without even a heatsink on it also. Just wondering if marketing made them put it on to make the card look more powerful 🤣... BUT it could be the i750 which was supposed to be a tad faster, they're rarer than the i740s.
