I got slightly obsessed with trying to build a Windows 98 SE on an HP Thin Client T5710 after reading some posts on here. I found one for cheap on eBay for about $28, and it was a fairly upgraded one with a 1.1 GHz Transmeta CPU. I took it apart to check the hardware and remove the 256 MB DOM, but I saw this (see attached image). Kind of bummed now.

where are you finding 2000s cases new?

Randomly found this one on ebay just searching "Raidmax cobra" so it was pure luck. I seem to find this stuff when just searching on a whim instead of searching daily/weekly for over a year. Same happened with the motherboard I'm going to put in that case. Almost got everything for a 15 year anniversary of my first gaming computer. 😁

Don't get too discouraged. Replacing capacitors is pretty simple.

Pretty simple and a necessary evil when working with hardware from this period in particular. That thin client is from smack bang in the middle of the plague era.

Got an Intel Celeron SL5WX 850MHz Socket370 for free. Now I can upgrade from Celeron 766 SL4P6. It was free with some socket 7, socket 370 and gaphics coolers.

Finally traced down my last missing Pentium II CPU model - Pentium II 266 Mhz/66 with Deschutes core for my wall display project. These are apparently much less common than Klamath ones.

Now I got 233, 266, 300 MHz Klamath and 266, 300, 333, 350, 400 and 450 MHz Detschutes

Nice. Looking at this I've recalled some joke:
- Your bathroom tile is so small.
- Yes, but it's branded.
- And what kind of brand?
- Intel...

Both from Poland:

a working 1541 drive, and a P75 (that I will upgrade to a 133 or 150 and stick on eBay).

There's some room left in my luggage, I might pick up another 386 😉

The Faceballs marketplace delivered today, paid a paltry sum for this bastard. Asus GF2 GTS. This was the one I wanted when I was making my first proper gfx card purchase. But being a penniless young 'un I had to settle for the GF2MX.

It's a complete kit apart from the Ulead VIdeoStudio CD. The glasses haven't even been taken out of the plastic yet, thumbsup.png

A handsome chap! I'm pretty pleased with myself, and it was definitely worth the drive to the end of the suburbs to go collect it.

I remember the Intel's bunny people ad campaign from the 90s... it looked so silly/idiotic to me back then... and it looks even more silly/idiotic now...

Check out my AmiBay and eBay for ISA and PCI card, 286/386/486 Pentium motherboards and more.

A bunch of stuffs for cheap..

Trident-TVGA9000-B-B.jpg

The board will eventually end up getting paired with a Cyrix mII 233 75MHz FSB and Voodoo 1.

My first thought when seeing the CPU was "Oh nice, an MMX overdrive!" but googling the clode SL23W reveals it's actually not an overdrive MMX. I didn't know regular MMX CPUs could come with heatsinks attached, strange.

Indeed its an awesome find, congratulations! Its always nice to see ASUS boxes being saved and preserved.

I also have this bad boy incoming, along with a TIvx ! So keen an eye out for mine so we can compare.

Cool find, I have one of those that I bought also boxed & complete specifically to try out the 3D glasses (and the NVision 3D software that can make "any" DirectX game work in 3D with them.) Great card... but because I don't have a CRT set up anymore, I've never tried the 3D glasses. 😜 Need to get on that sometime.
