Re: Is there Anyone "Overpaying" for Hardware and Proud of it? Well, maybe not Proud, but...

I started because it was cheap and because of nostalgia, these days people may start because they are also nostalgic but not because it's cheap because it isn't anymore. I started because of COVID-19. Spending too much time at home brings some quite weird ideas to mind. 😄 My idea was to collect …

Just gonna grab a AGP one .. I just saw the shipping on teh PCI one ...its nearly 100 USD to ship it and 170 to buy it ...WTF on that shipping. 100 USD for shipping? 😮 Where do you live? On the Moon? Australia so pretty dang close to the moon. Ahh, that fairyland where people walk upside down? 🙂 By …

Sitting here wondering if 170 USD is too much for a rare PCI version of a Voodoo Banshee, only ever seen one PCI PC version of it before this one. I would love to have it for a socket 7 build since it would scream on such a system. I guess this here is what this thread is all about isn't it. …

Supply and demand. .... ...Hence supply and demand, drives prices up. And yes, you can always spot those that find something old, and think that it is worth tons of money. Yep... Sad but true. Speaking of pricing..... The last two good deal that I got ... Speaking of pricing ... The cheapest stuff …

Regarding the supply on the market. Some 3 to 5 years ago, you were able to find Voodoo cards and AWE64 Gold cards locally from time to time. They were some times cheap and there would be at least 2 for sale each month. Now I have not seen any AWE64-Gold for sale locally the last year or so. There …

By the way, guys, any ideas why Iomega ZIP 100 external drives cost so much? There are tons of them, they are very problematic ("click of death" issue) ... And still, someone continue to buy them for very high prices. WHY??? maybe trying to get data from old disks before its too late, but i suspect …

Maybe businesses for some proprietary shit? I never knew anyone who has them, but at work a tape drive is still in use with an old HP work station. I'd guess it's a same for those ZIP drives. If businesses need one to keep something running, they pay whatever they have to. ZIP drives for business? …

In my case I simply have a budget for those things. What fits my budget I do buy and what doesn't fit, I don't buy. Regarding prices, I guess it's a matter of experience which you gain after couple of months of browsing eBay listings. When you have some, you simply feel if it's too high, fair or …

Re: The dark side of playing computer games?

Are there any negative effects of playing computer games too much? The thing is that computer games are designed to be played "too much". So, if you're not planning to just admire them as a pure pieces of art only, you have to choose only between (1) to play too much or (2) not to play at all. In …
