I have been waiting for the better part of a year scouring local deals hoping a 486 PC would show up and I've seen nothing other than some either overly expensive ebay options or really cruddy low profile 486 33sx compaq-ish types.

So I bit the bullet and bought a Socket 3 VLB motherboard with an AMD DX4 100, 16MB ram, a controller card and a 512KB Trident video card. If I find that the motherboard is working nicely I may consider a VLB video card and faster VLB controller card as I've never used or had VLB before.

The controller card has a Winbond chip, are these decent and reliable? Should I have any issues with a master CF card or maybe SD card adapter with a slave CD rom on the same cable? The oldest I have is a 48x Creative CD drive.

It's going to go into an AT case (no mhz LED or turbo button sadly) and probably going to put in my big ass SB16 CT2830. Maybe the CD drive can connect to this? I've also got an ESS Audiodrive that has a CDROM header.

Winbond, OPti, Acer, Goldstar are all perfectly compatible with CFIDE in my experience.

That sound card can control an IDE CD-ROM.

Hi guys,

Last month I swore I won't spend any money this year on old(shit/crap) hardware, but I found these and I just couldn't resist... just couldn't... I know, I'm weak. But I guess I'm not the only one here...

I've picked up these RAM modules for the 30 pin SIMMs(1Mb modules - Siemens HYM 91000L-70) and for the IBM EDO DIMMs(32 Mb 60ns 5V modules). The rest is bonus.

Here I have:

AMD K6/266AFR
Celeron 566 SL46T
Celeron 633 SL4PA

AMD Am486 DX4-100 A80486DX4-100NV8T
Intel 486 DX2-66 SX911
Pentium 166 MMX SL239
I've had in my collection of CPUs only three of these chips...

These where two separate lots from the same seller, so I asked him if he has some other "old stuff". He said yes, and I picked up the following...

2 ISA sound cards - Yamaha YMF719E-S and OPTI 82C931(took it for the shape)
ATI Radeon 9800 PRO AGP 128 Mb from Connect3D - the card looks brand new, only one of the two plastic pins from the heatsink is broken...

This 286 mainboard is in great shape, it was only a little bit dusty. It has a 12 MHz AMD CPU. Maybe I could find some info later and fire it up...

Gigabyte GA-6BXC rev 2.0, it should support CPUs up to 950 MHz/1 GHz, if I recall correctly... This one too is in great shape...

Everything was around 63 Euros/77 USD, shipping included. That's why I couldn't resist buying all of this...
Now I need to find some time for testing/playing with these goodies 😀
PS: two more AT cases including power supplies, FDDs, HDDs and optical drives are on their way for really cheap

This is easily my favorite box art for a 3Dfx card yet. Very nice!

SIS driver diskette anno 1995.. Iam guessing its for the SIS501 motherboard or perhaps SIS5511. Iam almost certain its not for 486.

~ At least it can do black and white~

He always finds amazing cards that I wish I had, but money is tight with Christmas coming up, car repairs that are needed, and other things. The big VooDoo 2 card is icing on the cake.

When you have money, people find you.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

I really like the GC controller! Coincidentally I took out my GameCube from storage a few days ago, to fit a XenoGC in it... Originally bought it in a bundle with a memory card and Super Smash Bros Melee back in high school, played for around two hours and packed it away, since I already had an XBOX and a Dreamcast at the time, and no interest in Nintendo or spending more money in games. While totally unused for all these years, not only the grey plastic panel with the ports (and part of the fitted memory card!) has yellowed a lot, but also it wouldn't read Super Smash 🙁 Took it apart, fitted the chip, tweaked the laser pot a bit and it's as good as new, I'm playing F-Zero GX lately!

For use in a Pentium 2/3.

I guess the 5700LE wouldn't be a bad buy for 10...I really don't like any of those options, but I'm more of a power snob...
