I also got a £5 mystery box from FB market which, while still worth more than £5. Isnt all that exciting. (1.05ghz athlon, built in vga, sound)

1.05ghz Athlon? That's likely a 1.4ghz CPU with the FSB set incorrectly.

yea its actually an athlonxp 1500+

this nice trio of boxes arrived recently :3
I really like the simplicity of the old style gravis boxes

It looks identical to the GeForce 4 mx460 I bought a few years back. But that could be any GeForce card that gpu and ram cooling solution was used on a ton of cards.

I'd ask for a clear picture of the back, clear enough to read labels

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.

Got these two at the end of last year, both still sealed.
This will complement my two ASUS P3B-F setups.
I'm looking forward to unsealing, breaking that packaging open, then then trying to work out what to store on the Jaz disks 😀

I'd wager a Geforce 3 ti200, with the top heatsink lost.

I agree !
added: near exact layout as my 64mb. the socket headers are for an add on TV out part.

Hate posting a reply and have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor. 🤣 Second computer a 286 12Mhz with real IDE drive ! After that came 386, 486, Pentium, P.Pro and everything after....

I was fortunate enough to snag a "computer parts" listing locally on FB. The seller told me they worked at Radio Shack in the 90s and early 00s, and were into building PCs but moved on to other interests years ago. I had to take everything, there were several bins of stuff, here are the more interesting items.

- AWE64 Gold still sealed in the bag, in a plain white box
- AWE64 Value CT4520
- SBLive with LiveDrive and remote
- Socket 423 beige tower PC; Abit TH7-Raid mobo, P4-2ghz, 512MB PC800 RDRAM (4x128MB), Geforce2 GTS, Antec/Chieftec tower
- Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 91 CRT (1600x1200x75hx, 1280x1024x85hz)
- SCSI items; 4 adaptec host adapters (ISA and PCI), 2 hard drives (2GB Seagate Barracuda and 240MB Quantum), 4 CDRWs (one Kenwood True-X)
- GPUs; 9800GT, 2x S3 Trio64, Creative Permedia2, ATI Radeon AIW
- 3.5" internal floppy and zip drives
- Several NICs (ISA and PCI)
- Evergreen MXPro 200 CPU with many bent pins
- So many cables, fans, and modems

I am particularly excited about the AWE64 Gold and the CRT. Thus far I have only tested the tower PC and monitor, which work fine. I had not used a high resolution CRT in a long time, that was nice. Next I need to rearrange my computer setup to make room for the CRT.

Got a $1 beige box custom PC build from circa 2003?ish from an estate sale.
Main event is this sweet purple motherboard with bad caps (already have the caps just gotta get soldering)

Probably will use it for a Windows 98 build, though the lack of ISA slots really sucks.

Also scored a Radeon 9800XT in the same system. Will probably try to sell it. Some caps were... like falling out of the board. Soldered them back in, tested it and it works great at least on Jedi Knight Dark Forces II, a game that refuses to load a level on my Voodoo 5 5500.

Early 90s: IBM PS/2 Server 95/A, Pentium 66, 16MB RAM, XGA-2, IBM SCSI Corvette, SCSI2SD, 3 Com EtherLink III MCA, Resound 2 AdLib MCA
Late 90s: Micron Millenia MXE, ABIT VH6-II, Coppermine 1ghz, 1024MB, Voodoo 5 5500 PCI, GUS Max 2.1, 128GB SATA PNY SSD

Socket 462(A) with DDR/SD-RAM? You paid a wonderful price for that system.

It's also compatible with low power AMD Geode CPUs. Add the universal AGP slot and you have one of the best Socket A motherboards for retro computing.

The Underdog - The budget K6
The Voodoo powerhouse - The power-hungry K7
The troll PC - The Socket 423 Pentium 4

The case is awesome!

as noted by others - what a great buy! i was thinking "what bad caps?" until half way down, but i'm sure it'll be good as new when you are done

i wouldn't worry about the lack of ISA, to me that board says Athlon XP and Windows XP. i'd be happy with that

She looks much like Elsa Gladiac, here is GF2 Ultra.https://www.anandtech.com/show/634/2

Camtheman:

Wow, nice buy. Nothing special, but unordinary purple/violet beauty from ECS. I remember dark brown/almost black K7S5A with SiS 735, which I have years ago. Pretty cheap, but usable board for AMD Duron and Athlon, none OC options (except several FSB/MEM frequencies in Cheepo BIOS from Cheepoman http://www.ocworkbench.com/2002/ecs/k7s5abios/cheepobios.htm). I had no idea there was a Pro version.
And for missing ISA - You can already use some PCI audio, even with FM.
