SCC-1 (boxed), missing 3,5" floppy and adapter cables (midi)

A second SCC-1 as well (no box, bare card with accessories including 3,5" floppy and adapter cables) Not that I needed those but nice to make my boxed copy above complete :happy:

Putting this one to good use, I hope.

Tres coolio. I've not seen many 8514 ... or compatibles. What instructions does it support? Are all drivers supplied with it?


I didnt check floppy yet. I hope this card will be published at http://www.vgamuseum.info soon. If you are interested, scan of booklets attached.

My latest acquisition in the quest for the perfect socket 3 motherboard to pair with a Cyrix 5x86. A Shuttle HOT-433 rev 4. First impression is solid so far, nice quality board and performance at first glance is good too, already tested at 60 MHz FSB and it is looking promising so far. Some more testing and benchmarking will show if it can defeat the M919, which is my top performing board so far (even without L2!!). Also a plus for the board is the standard PLL with easy to find datasheet. Even the DALLAS is still holding a charge.

I had that board, and most of the cards kept the motherboard from POSTing, and shorted the ISA bus (and killing my childhood sound card). Well built, but the Dallas RTC is a royal PITA (sometimes soldered on permanently).

Why? The Dallas RTC mod is pretty easy and there happens to be a lot of working space on the board by that Dallas chip (on the side you need to do the mod).

I had completely missed the whole Socket 754 era due to being on tour of duty, so now, fifteen years later, I decided to check it out. Some Socket 754 goodies.

Awesome. Owning and using are a one-two punch for retro hardware. Congrats, rikukos. Hope to maybe own one myself at some point!

Nice! I have really fond memories of the platform: I had a 754 when it was "relevant", quotation marks because it was quickly and largely overshadowed by socket 939. I remember using a cheap MSI motherboard based on nForce4-4x, it had both PCI-E and AGP slots so I used it for multiple GPU generations. Even got a 4000+ mobile CPU for it... dammit, now I got emotional.

Its probably stored somewhere at my folks' place. Next time I visit I'll look for it.

Nice, I bought one of those laptops at a thrift about 5 years ago, they make great late-9x/early-XP laptops. Since I haven't heard of anyone getting a NOS XP laptop, you should make an unboxing and first power-up video, that would definitely be an interesting sight to see.

The 9800XT I got for $25 is dead. Artifacts everywhere on startup.

I'm so pissed. Everytime a top end part finds its way to my hands at a reasonable price ($25 is what it's worth, no video card from a decade ago is worth more. Not even a V5 5500 IMO) it seems to be dead.

Off to demand my refund and leave a scathing review I suppose. There are times I wonder if items listed as tested and working are ever actually tested.

Has to be frustrating... I've had a couple purchases over the past year that turned out to have more problems than expected.

If it ends up happening constantly, I'd blame something else other than chance... maybe a bad power supply in a test system or something. Stop using Deer, Bestec or Hercules PSUs? :dead: (just kidding)

Have you tried it in a few systems? I had the same artifacting problem with a 9800XT I bought recently. It did this in the first system I tried it in (think it was Socket A), then it wouldn't even boot in an nForce board (could have been the PSU though), until I had success with it in a socket 370 system - nice clear picture, everything as it should be.

If a deal sounds too good to be true it more often than not isn't.

Got these recently (sellers photo and they aren't that yellowed). Only did a quick test (was almost midnight) and they sound pretty good for plastic speakers :lol:
