I bought these last month.
I don't know why ?
Maybe I will take some authentic photos with 1990's cameras.
Some of the first digital cameras I had.

Can it run Domain/OS as well or just HP-UX?

I have allot of memories working with those HP 9000 computers.
That one appears to be loaded with ram.

Good for running HPUX 9x or 10.20 but NOT 11x

I just bought a turtle beach pinnacle project studio soundcard with box and manual and floppy ..( only midi cable missing) .the card includes both simm memory sticks. and 2 doughter boards. because the card uses 2 boards . one is the wavetable kurzeeil HOMAC. and the other board connected to the card i have no idea what it is because im waiting for.it to get shipped.

25 bucks... i think i made a good deal

Found something somewhat interesting at a local thrift shop at last:

Image

An almost pristine 1999-era Highscreen case with contents - a loot box in other words ;)

So what was inside?

Image

Slightly disappointing:
P3-500
64MB PC100 SDR-SDRAM
MSI MS-6163VA slot 1 board with Via ApolloPro Plus chipset
STB Velocity 4400 AGP (Riva TNT 16MB)
Generic RTL-8139 10/100 PCI NIC
Terratec Solo 1 PCI (ESS Solo-1)
Lucent Winmodem PCI
200W Seasonic PSU
40x IDE CDRom drive
3.5" FDD

Both the 6163VA and Solo 1 have PC/PCI (SBLink) headers, but no cable connecting them.

All in all not bad, but not great either and exactly 0 components I was actually looking for.

you guys have luck in USA, looks like in your country the retro cases were produced with materials that don´t turn yellow like a cardboard.
In here all the cases were imported from china, made of cheap plastic, common designs that you always see on google photos, hence all old pcs are yellow.

Depends on where you are. A lot of the old cases I have seen/had in the past were yellowed.

Now where I am at, it is pretty much impossible to find old cases. And I really don't care for most old cases anyway unless they are aluminum.

The newer cases just have so much better airflow and cable management compared to the old crappy AT/ATX cases that we used to have to use.

USA? This was a thrift shop in a small town 15mins drive outside of Amsterdan, NL.

Not at all sure there are any significant regional differences between materials regardless, this is a global industry with pretty much everything produced in China (or previously Taiwan or Japan). Also, it's an industry with very short design life cycls. Unless you're buying mainframes, anything you buy is deemed to be obsolete within about 5 years, so no one considers behaviour let alone optics of systems far belong those design goals. That means that even expensive stuff can go yellow as hell. Take a look at any Sun Microsystems workstation these days...
Conversely some low-end stuff survives regardless - like this Highscreen case. Highscreen was pretty low-end/commodity in the day, certainly nothing special (as proven by the components inside it), and definitely not designed against yellowing.

Tbh though, I suspect that - given how clean and undamaged it is - this system has lived in a dark cupboard for most of the last two decades, and would rapidly yellow if you left it out in the daylight. I've seen enough other Highscreen systems turn brownish yellow.

A few things over the month or so:

Finally found a cool (to me anyway) mid 2000s case, NZXT Nemesis Elite. Complete system with an Asus K8N mobo and working PSU that I can use for benchmarking some stuff.

A Yamaha MU5 for $25 shipped, sounds pretty good even compared to the better sound modules.

ATI Pro Turbo PC2TV aka Rage II with 8MB

Nice. :) My first digital camera was a Kodak DC50 around 1996 or 1997. Gross by modern standards, but for the time, to be able to take pictures and have them show up on the PC was an incredible thing.

The label on the box also clearly says "R7000"

Edit: so does the card silkscreen for that matter.

One of the first cards to support DirectX 9, unlike nVidia.
