Bought this used 19" lcd with a great stand for 15€.
The 5:4 ratio is way better for retro stuff, than the everyday 16:9 or 16:10 screens i used previously. Unfortunately, i don't have that much space to get a proper CRT, so that lcd is fine enough.

The monitor stand itself was well worth of this 15€ and therefore the monitor can be considered as free. 😜

Awsome. Is it height adjustable? It's aways good when you get a bargain.

Yes it is! And the pole itself has even a cable duct inside. (Y)

"640K ought to be enough for anybody." - And i intend to get every last bit out of it even after loading every damn driver!

Um.. Are you sure? Because I also have this, and it's DDR although in SGRAM packaging:

USB hard-drive dock so I can image my old IDE hard-drives.
Works with PC and Macs.

I got the same one... the problem is the spacing between the IDE and power connector.. this dock lets you adjust spacing but a) i've found drives that still don't fit and b) when it DOES fit, it still is a bit of a pain to get the drive pushed in all the way

Ahhh ! Your right. My IBM IDE hard drives won't fit and I am pretty sure tall IDE drives will not fit either.
I am going to have to get something more compatible with large drives.

Hi folks!

Per my earlier post in this thread (last post on page 1507) - would someone mind PM'ing Artex for me and ask him to send me a message with his email address? He did reach out to me but I'm unable to reply because my account is too new. Much appreciated!

I needed some variety in my ISA VGA collection so I grabbed this when I saw it for five bucks.

Apparently it's one of the fastest ISA cards for DOS, interestingly. I will probably replace my 386SX's Trident 9000B with this.

Actually yeah, I did; don't know why it didn't work though. Seller's pic; I'll take a better one once I get it and clean it up.

Is it confirmed, that Cirrus Logic rebranded the AVGA2 as the 5402? While the comparison indicates good performance for the AVGA2 I was always under the impression that the last two digits were the designators for the chipset generation and therefore give a clue about the performance. Given the rather mediocre performance of the later 542x chipset series it is surprising that the naming convention is so inconsistent.

So I effectively paid $10 to dumpster dive at a local computer recycler, and managed to pick up two nice, working cards.

And a Diamond Stealth 64 DRAM PCI. And before you mention it, I did bend the pin back in to place.

If you need an LMSI interface card, you could buy this: https://www.ebay.de/itm/143367181774

While it does not mention compatibility with your drive, I got my CM50 working with the CM153 interface card as well as with the SB16 LMSI. The only important thing is to use the driver for the interface card, not for the CD-ROM drive, as the latter will expect a certain interface card and not the one you are actually using.

This glorious case for 15Euro. If you think the rust is bad on the outside is bad, its waaay worse on the inside, so sadly this went to recycling today.

I wouldn't have picked it up if it was completely trashed, though. Inside - a surprisingly clean 486 motherboard with an IBM Blue Lightling DX2-66. My First Cyrix! Also a Tseng ET4000EX Graphics card, 178MB WD caviar hard drive and 1x speed Mitsumi CD drive.
