More e-waste loot for $43
-MSI MS-4144 Socket 3 Motherboard
Its missing its BIOS chip, but there seems to be a dump on win3x.org. I'll see if I can program a chip.
Thank you, win3x crew.
-Winbound VLB IO card
-Trident Blade 3D
I just felt like I should own a terrible card.
-Trident Blade XP
confirmed broken upon closer inspection
has bad water damage on the back. Might be repairable.
-3x Tseng Hercules VLB
They all have rusty vga ouputs. I dunno how to replace vga plugs yet. Soldering them on shouldn't be a problem. Its just figuring out how to remove the rusty ones without damaging the pcb seems to be a problem.
-another Sound Blaster CT1350B
I suppose I have two now. The other one is a Rev. 4. I dunno which revision this is.
-Asus Geforce FX 5950 Ultra
Beautiful card. I pulled it straight from a computer. I just don't know what its good for. Its not really a win9x card and it doesn't seem to be an amazing winXP card when compared to later offerings. However, it is rare.
-2x Voodoo3 3000
only cards that I've tested and confirm working so far
some of the hackwork wiring that Creative did came undone. Should be easy to fix.
at least I think so. Might be a 7000
-Promise Sata PCI card
should be useful
-S3 Vision968 PCI
Looks great, so I took it. Big lettering on the back; "Number Nine Visual Technology"
My PCChips M919 mobo that I posted earlier in this thread is working, but the ISA and VLB slots don't. Only plugging in a PCI video card works. Is there something I'm missing? Anything ISA doesn't work with it. Re: Bought these (retro) hardware today

I had a GeForce2 Ti but the Ultra is substantially more rare unless I am wrong. A TNT2 M64 won't set the world on fire but it's PCI so that makes it a good pick for some Socket 7 through Socket 370 builds. The P3-1000 was just a last minute throw in.
I also got these from @dreamblaster. You make awesomesauce stuff my friend.
I also bought a FIC FR33E mATX Socket 370 board to replace the PC Partner PM601TMS3-T898C I currently have in there. Both are PLE133T boards, but this one supports VIA C3 which I plan to use for a DOS/Win9x frankenstein build.. I'll post photos of that one later.
Yes the Ultra seem to be quite a bit rarer.
M64 isn't a bad card really. Yours is PCI and has a beautiful fan on it. I'd say its a keeper for its sheer utility.
