No idea what the hell a GF256 GTS is but I bought it anyway. Probably just a GF2 GTS.. But weird as hell.

It's a GeForce 2 GTS. 😀

One of the main problems I have had with retro computers is that I didn't have any serial mouse, so I had been looking for one. I had seen them on ebay but I thought they were expensive or postage to my country didn't make sense.
I finally found one locally just for 4 euros and it has never been used. Probably just oem because it is just in plastic bag, but it looks so clean. 😀 .

3-button mice are amazing. I have a PS/2 version that can also be used with a serial port for systems that don't have a PS/2 port.

I did bit of searching and found this page: http://us.aving.net/news/view.php?articleId=27676
it looks same as the mouse from 1991. That would make it 27 years old.

Found this for sale locally and tested it with an Playstation1 before buying. Going to be the ultimate flatscreen retro and DVD movie television for the price. That is 20 Euro as a pickup offer.... Amiga600, Commodore64 Model-C and Playstation1 looks sharp and I have never seen better on a LCD television. The only thing that would beat this without convertion (scandoubling and so on), is good old CRT screen with annoying high pitch noise.

Below the two pictures, is a link to my google drive, with pictures of the quality I get when using my Amiga600 and scart.

thx. yes... the interwave is from amd. it is a great card, but at the scene demos you can have some gus compatibility issues with the timing.

What are some prods that actually have compatibility issues with the PnP? I've heard this said before but I've NEVER run into something that didn't work with it. I haven't seen every demo or intro out there but I've been using a PnP since '98 & to me it seems to do the job just fine.

eg this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPQ3oL-2_9Q

I'm also curious about this. Are you saying that the demo - as played in the video - shows the issues with the PnP, or that the demo will have issues if played on a PnP?

I have the Sonic Impact S70 (ESS Maestro-2 ES1968S). It needs repairs, but, it's an amazing card with Sound Blaster Pro emulation for DOS.

Got a Dell 2007fp from work today. This monitor, along with many others, were being thrown out. There were three 2007fp, and one of them had the IPS panel, so I naturally grabbed that one. It's going to be replacing my 5:4 aspect ratio Dell 1907fp. The 2007fp supports 1:1 and aspect scaling, unlike 1907fp, which is nice.

Special or not, quite a lot of people would be very interested in it. 😀

Brand, type, model nr? 😀

I got this DTK PAM-0055I-E0 Socket 7 board today for $20 shipped. This is my first and only 430HX board. I figure it'll work nicely in a Baby AT case with a P166 or so. It's an earlier revision of the board with only 3.4/3.5V support, so I'll have to stick to TX boards for any PMMX builds.

Well, my big box of random ISA cards arrived today. Was not sure if I had paid too much as the only card I could identify from the pics was the CT1600 (Sound Blaster Pro 2 rev 7).. but when I started pulling the cards out, I found out I had gotten a great deal.

It even says on the board that it is black+white and parallel 😀

See my graphics card database at www.gpuzoo.com
Constantly being worked on. Feel free to message me with any corrections or details of cards you would like me to research and add.

HAHAHAHAHAHA. I saw that and it went over my head. For some reason I was thinking that the black+white was referring to the one chip that is black and white.
