Probably stored in a humid attic or barn. Never understood why people store things like this to just corrode into a rust pile. Same goes with some car collectors who just leave the cars out in a field and then charge ridiculous amounts for a rusted out carcass. Just sell it to someone who will take care of it. My OCD does not approve.

I had some Voodoo3 AGP cards stored in my attic for about 3 years, but they were all in individually sealed plastic bags (static bags) with a decadent pouch in each bag. Survived fine for me, even in our hot texas summers.

Yes. What I meant was most store their items exposed and not sealed. You obviously are careful with your collection. Still, a climate controlled environment is optimal. When I used to do data center work we had to strike a careful balance between keeping it cool, but not too dry or humid. Each had its challenges with certain types of hardware.

Yeah, definitely not pretty. Still, an MCD with 4.05 DSP is pretty uncommon.

5 minutes with some windex and a few paper towels, he might actually sell that.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Are these MCA voicetype adapter dictation cards capable of generating normal sound output and can they be used as rather cheap substitutes for the even more expensive MCA soundcards? This site reveals that the adapter has a stereo speaker out...

I like the title... essentially just advertising the Cyrix and nothing else :lol:

It's almost like... spend as much as you can on the CPU and receive everything else as a goodwill gesture.

Will you be having a stab at it?

Nah, if it doesn't sell I might put in an offer, the reality is, the 5x86-120 is a fine CPU and does better in some benchmarks vs 133 because of the higher bus speed (40mhz vs 33mhz).

Its more a collector item, If I wasn't the main bread winner for my wife and 3 kids I'd be all over that :neutral: .

It is but their is value in that package.

Shuttle Hot 433 - Approx $100
Boxed Pentium 83 - $60
Boxed Evergreen AM5x86-100 $60
Cyrix 120GP - $100??
IBM 5x86-100 - $50
Cyrix 5x86-100 x2 -$30 a piece

ROUGH figures above but realistically ALL the cpus & motherboard would be worth at least $400USD and the 5x86-133 is worth $200 everyday of the week.

The same French seller sold another 5x86-133GP/4X for EUR 150 "More than a year ago": https://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI. ... nterval=30
What on Earth was I doing then?!!

Wouldn't agree on those two, should be discounted at least twice.
