Funny how some 3DFX cards with fans has the "3DFX" sticker and others say "AAVID".

Even more funny is the fact, that 3dfx managed to spell "3dfx interactive" wrong on the pcb... :)

Worth mentioning what I didn't pick up today, due to being too hung over to check my mail after posting an offer on old hardware. Offer accepted, but after I didn't respond someone else got lucky.

What did I miss:
- Voodoo 1
- IBM Model M
- Baby AT case with early 486 look about it
- at least 3 small old monitors, probably VGA but not even certain
- a few boxes of other odds & ends which might well have contained more goodness.

Bugger. Could have had all that for very little indeed and have no one other than myself to blame.

Ok often it is the other way around, where you buy something when you're drunk and wake up the next day and wonder why... I heard that this from a friend of a friend, of course... 😉

You mean like the double sets of CPU tray I ordered twice the same evening without realizing it? 😉

Sent payment for this bunch, fingers crossed it gets here before I assplode with anticipation...

So 2 slotkets, 2 tualatin socket adapters, a 1.1A, a 733 cumine celly under the sink, plus sink. Got one of the V1.1 MSIs already, I want to start with a pair of identical slotkets... (Bet you can guess where that's going) Now I probably wouldn't be on that track, but I have a P2B-D that I got back in the day, and two 1.1GHz P3s

Sellers pic.

(Edit: I'm a dirty rotten liar, I have 1.0 Ghz even P3s, derp.)
(Edit2: I has tracking, yiss.)

Won a custom painted Mario NES-001 front loader shell for my one NES that has a broken shell (door won't stay closed, plastic is breaking off, and a few other things).

Nothing else in the world smells like that.
I love the smell of burnt components in the morning.

A lot of 478 CPUs WITHOUT bent pins. Miracles do happen!

Another custom NES shell: TMNT, some long screws (1 is missing a long screw for the cartridge slot in one of the consoles), and 3 refurbished 72 pin connectors.

Just won a Sony Vaio PCG-F801 Laptop.

Looks to be a cool little laptop, 12.1" 800x600 Display, K6 2+ 533 CPU. I think it has some sort of Trident VGA chip and not sure on the exact sound chip, but from my quick search is SB Compatible.

Almost bought a Vic 20 but I resisted it's really too old for my taste but it seems awesome when the 80 bit guy shows it off..

Instead I picked up this for 10 $.

A cooler master case and a working ( by me tested ) PSU, a GeForce 7 (probably defective) a HDD and a defective Asus m2v. In fact it was tampered with. A SATA data cable was connected from the motherboard and back into an other slot, a laptop ram was inserted in a slot (!) and two SATA power cables were forced into an IDE connector... I have no way of checking if the processor is ok. It does not even post, power supply doesn't start, probably a short somewhere it looks physically ok though but I don't care too much. I wanted the case.
