Nice to see photos of real hardware people own themselves and not some general photos stolen all over from the net - congrats! Guess that was the idea of this thread from the very beginning :wink:

A bit quiet for me lately regarding retro purchases but got this Matrox Millennium G200 (PCI version, sealed), though.

That is cool, I haven't seen a tip magnetic drive fan for years, it'd be great if you could get some video of how it sounds - I seem to recall those things like to burn out? The only other videos about the "Vantec Aeroflow" are super old (2006) - I love failed cooling technology like this stuff :)

^You might get more results for TMD fans if you search for Y.S. Tech, which is almost certainly the OEM behind the Vantec Aeroflow. TMD fans are very cool-looking but I remember they made a high-pitched squealing noise when they were running...

I haven't bought these (yet?) but they're up for grabs on a local site. Wondering if anything there is worth the 1/2 hour drive to go get. Can you guys identify these?

I think the second from the right is a 9600 All-in-Wonder Pro, which is a cool card, but not one I need. I'm mostly after NON-ATI/Nvidia stuff at this point.

That's probably the only decent one out of the lot. I've been collecting early 2000s ATI cards so hopefully my memory is still good.

I don't know what the one on the far left is (looks like an Nvidia geforce2 MX card or a TNT2 M64), but starting with the second one I think the rest are Radeons: 9250, 128 AIW, 9600 AIW, and a 9200 SE.

Yeah. In fact it's the exact same case as Robert B's 5x86 build from the first page of his thread, the only difference being his is a AMD 5x86 while mine is a Pentium MMX.

I was in a local thrift shop today (looking for old home audio speakers actually) and I came across a Logitech Wingman Extreme w/USB adaptor so I just had to grab it.
Also yellow tag items were 50% off so I only pad $2.64 in the end

I hope it works well, the snap back action seems pretty good, but not sure how the buttons and that side lever axis work.. Can anyone point me in the direction of some good guides on cleaning these up / restoring them?

Thanks for that! I think the far left card might be a Savage4, based on the big EEPROM BIOS & positioning of the RAM. That would be interesting to me, although god knows when I'd get around to using it in anything. Still thinking...

Thanks to all for your input regarding that ACER! :cool: Think I am not going to get it as it has a non-standard form factor.

Intergraph TD-300 desktop system.

Not sure what it is exactly, it has a pretty astonishing variety of integrated ports on the back, and two video cards I don't immediately recognize from the backplane. Looking for technical documentation now. Powers on, but my monitors are all in storage (moving) so I can't really tell if it's functional..

Maybe the video cards are the Matrox Mystique, alas, I could be wrong.

Matrox Millenium 2064W, checked the manual for it.

Also, looks like it's the same card as in my Pentium MMX machine :lol:
