I immediately fell in love with the heatsink, fan and the fact that it comes overclocked out of the box. Back in the day it was about 130 euro more expensive than a normal GeForce 6800 GT.

Makes me feel like owning one of those overlocked RTX 2080 Supers.

Box doesn't come with all the extra hardware and software, but I don't mind! When you take into account how much stuff this came with the extra price was not bad at all.

quite refreshing to not see an over-sexualized woman as boxart for once :p

I saved this wonderful condition (only the base seems yellowed) and working Miro Ergoline V1770 T from the crusher this month, it was listed on the local classifieds in a far away town as about to be thrown away, after communicating with the nice seller they said they'd drive past my town later this month and would take it with them for a small extra fee, so I took a drive across town to meet up next to the highway where they passed through and picked it up last weekend.
...and yes, there's a Trinitron hiding behind that "T" 😁
the same monitor seems to also have been sold by DELL as D1025HTX, probably based on the Sony CPD-17SF2?

Got this baller-looking videocard, an Asus V9999!

Very nice packaging and very mint card.

IBM PS/2 Model 70. PSU works but computer doesn't show anything on the screen. Few elements on the PCB are quite warm - I need to check the motherboard. Fingers crossed it's some capacitor/regulator issue... It also contains ESDI HDD, it spins up - with a bit of luck maybe it will work. I think I overpaid for it - 75$.

Linksys 16-port 10/100 switch. I've bought some CAT6 cables for it for cheap. Perfect for my setup - I have a lot of PC's ready-to-run, connected to KVM. Now almost every PC have access to the internet. Including 486! Love that for transfer files via FTP.

Some small AMD 386DX-40 motherboard without BIOS and after small battery leakage. Should be fixable.

Inspired by LGR, I've bought full-metal aluminium case. I'll build a Tualatin PC on it. Can't wait for the package!

No pics yet but have what I believe to be 2x Evergreen 5x86 133 (AMD) on the way as well as what I think to be a Gainberry 5x86 - not sure of the speed as there is nothing on top of the heatsink. It is the larger black heatsink so maybe it is the 133... wishing for a Cyrix variant which may have not even existed at the 133 speed from Gainberry.
Why do I need more? I have no idea.

Also have 4 more COAST sticks on the way. Maybe more if the seller has any more.

That one is a real beauty 😍, congrats. I just wish those RAM SIMMs were red, too.

Received the SAAYM card and DIN-5 cables for a 4-port KVS system I ordered (still waiting for the unit to arrive along with the serial cables).

Interestingly, they never were. I've still got my originally included 1 MB memory stick and it's all nice and green.

I've seen red SIMMs, Gravis-branded.

That's pretty much their going rate nowadays. No buyers regrets please.

Yeah, it's not that bad. I hope that motherboard can be fixed easily. ESDI drive can be replaced with some MDA SCSI controller if the hard drive will come out faulty.

Turtle Beach Cancun FX MIDI daughterboard, boxed set. Love it!
I already had the board as part of the TB Montego II Home Studio set, but this is a very nice addition to the collection!

I got a V3 3000 AGP and a GF point of Veiw GT240 1gb 128bit model (https://www.techpowerup.com/108492/point-of-v … 40-accelerators). Both untested, costing 5 dollars each one.
Is the GT 240 "useful" for xp games unitl 2005?

A v3 for $5 is a steal. It appears the GT240 will handle XP games OK, although I prefer a GTX2/5 series: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/axle-gefor … -gt-240/18.html
