Also an in-box Radeon x1950 pro AGP, although the box was completely trashed. While not a "real" agp card, it will certainly come in handy.

What are you talking about? That card is beautiful.

Not sure what you mean.The x1950 was sold in its original packaging. The card itself is in great condition, but that carboard box was all torn up and barely holding itself together.
It is also not a true AGP card as it uses a bridge chip, which can cause issues in some cases.

Some connectivity option for a NEC sigmarion Mips-based Windows Ce device, the wifi card needs driver s installed, the Buffalo works out of the box, the Corega one isn't recognized by the integrated network drivers...

Two used USB floppy drives, a regular 1x speed model and 2x speed model, definitely faster but making more noise. The 1x is not as yellow as it looks like on the picture, phone camera default settings are to be blamed for that:

I found this cl5426 card, german but unknown to me:IMG_20211113_190819.jpg

Odd it uses a SIMM module, but it's cool looking.

bought this Spectra Multi-Quad gas analyzer off ebay for $105USD plus... $15 shipping to canada from USA???? I don't even

anyway, tis obviously a 386, probably a single board computer in backplane. but the cool thing? BUILT IN VGA CRT MONITOR

will likely do a couple minor case mods to allow usage of regular ISA cards and maybe reskin the front plastics.

Got this fully loaded ASUS P5E3 deluxe (X38 chipset/socket 775/DDR3), brand 'new' in a shiny box, looks totally untouched !😁, for 25 euros.
Windows XP for sure, but maybe Win98 could somehow work as well I wonder.

Sweet, I’m looking for an Asus Rampage II Extreme (X48) to pair with two of my 5970s, as far as I know it’s one of the few boards that can fit two Accelero 5970s in Crossfire…

Went to the usual old tech/scrap place this weekend and the guy had something for me - AT case, bottom so rusted I could poke a finger through it and reeking of a sewer for a nice 10 Euros (not pictured as I took all I needed out of it ASAP and got it to the recyclers). Sometimes I wonder if the health risks are worth it. This time It was! Insides contained:

Zida 5SVA socket 7 motherboard with a Cyrix 6x86L 133MHz CPU.
Expertcolor T2000 PCI graphics card. After a bit of googling, this appears to be a "InteGraphics Systems CyberPro2000 PCI". Never heard of this before.
Opti chipset ISA sound card. Pretty bland and basic stuff, but the red PCB looks nice.

Thankfully all we need to know is in the name, CyberPro2000 that must mean it's super internetty, highly professional and ultra futuristic because 2000AD yo, when we get hoverboards and space hotels, so as far as PCI cards go, it's the shiznit.

Yeah, she's a beaut. Love projects like this. After a good cleaning and when you're done with the build please post more photos.

PCIE gpu would be difficult for win98se but perhaps with a generic reference driver.
deftineately possible to run 98se but with unofficial patches and even so theres no official drivers.
I own one and I just run 98se through a hypervisor. you gots oracle and vmware there 😀
Mine, i dubbed "The Pig" because it went through so many memory sticks and cpu's to finally work and the price you paid makes me feel almost envious at your good fortune.
Great to see a fresh new one.

I bought a 1MB Mapper/MegaRAM SD cartridge for my MSX 1, to expand the RAM & run games from SD Card. I was aware that the particular MSX model I own has compatibility issues with some mapper cartridges (a Sanyo MPC-100) and indeed the cartridge doesn't function - "Disk driver not found. System halted." error.

So I bought another MSX 1: (Stock web image, as it hasn't arrived yet.)

The more common (here in the UK at least) Toshiba HX-10, should work nicely with the cartridge.

I like the look of the Sanyo MPC-100, so I'll not sell it on. It can keep on happily running Cassette-based games & .CAS images from a CASDuino device.

Was so tempted to get an MSX 2, maybe in the next couple of years. 🤣

Why the MSX1 initially instead of a 2? Im not very familiar with the platform other then the Konami games on it. Isn't 2 /2+/Turbo R a straight upgrade or are there some particular compatibility issues?

They are upgrades yes, 2 is better than 1, 2+ can be better than 2 and Turbo R (some compatibility issues aside) is better than the lot.

The main factor for me getting an MSX 1 is the price - they're much cheaper as an entry level MSX. I paid about <£60 each for my MSX 1 computers, whilst MSX 2 computers can start from anywhere around £250 and up & more for 2+ or Turbo R machines. Plus, with the later machines I'd probably have to look at importing them as opposed to buying local as they weren't very common here in the UK.

Would love to get some UK Stuff. Planning to get some old computers like spectrum, cpc, msx, Atari st. I hope I can find all of them here in Germany for a decent price,when I have the money.

Today I managed to find an ISA Ethernet card and an ISA SCSI card. I’m not too sure about what all the SCSI card can do, but I do at least know the FCC ID leads to it being related to an internal CD drive.

This is probably the most mysterious computer I've ever gotten my hands on...a massive 386 "laptop" made by some Taiwanese company I've never heard of, but very clearly intended to be a clone of the Toshiba T5200. I'm glad it works because I don't even know how to take this thing apart, let alone fix it.

Looks like. Makes sense though an AGP only system might not be expected to have PCI-E power connectors

Mine is an AGP card. I had to buy a 4-pin to 6-pin adapter since the PSU in that system doesn't have a 6-pin connector.

I believe that is a rebranded CMI8830/A chipset.
