Ordered some PCB's and all the discrete components yesterday. Going to make some XT-AT keyboard converters, and a few Adlib clones.

Which should look like this when done (plus the rear I/O bracket which I'm going to make):

Got this purple ati 7500 for the price of the delivery (2 euros) and, I'm a bit stumped after looking at it more closely.... seems to be made in 2005, but its a 2001 model, why were they still making them in 2005? Also, heatsink seems to be oem and is glued to the gpu chip, but pcb has mounting holes and even a fan connector?

Is it AGP? PCI versions of the 7500 were ised in Alpha hardware for many years I believe. I have a 7500 PCI from an Alpha workstation, it's also a late manufacture.

OTOH I never heard of a purple 7500, can you post photos?

I installed a heatsink fan on my old GeForce4 MX4000 PCI card since the old heatsink broke off. The card worked without the heatsink on there, which was odd, yet no artifacts. Parted it since the RAM was starting to flake out and the PCI pins were in rough shape.

Well, 2 photos are attached to my post, aren't they showing up? It is AGP, and it wasnt in a workstation, just some generic pentium 4 pc some guy was parting out and giving away some of the parts for free

That's not too uncommon for cards chosen by OEMs. I have some Matrox G200 OEM cards made in 2003 - 5 years after the G200 was released.

Purple ATI cards were not that uncommon either. The original All-in-Wonder X800 XT was purple as well (see here for example), so were some others. This shows a purple 7500 as well: https://www.kupindo.com/Graficke-kartic ... 0-dual-vga

Picked up a matched pair of 1.4ghz Tualatin Pentium 3's. One serial number apart in production codes out of a dead Compaq 1U server. Also got the 4x1gb sticks of ECC PC133 for my dual Pentium 3 machine. Doesn't really need the upgrades but eh why not? Also a free stack of 2gb sticks DDR2 800 ram.
Non-Retro was more interesting. Pair of 2gb 750ti's, Q9505 cpu, i5-760 based Dell XPS, complete system. Everything super useful for various systems for people I know or myself in the P3 stuff.

Main pc: Asus Rampage Gene ii, X5650, 250gb Samsung Evo, RX480, 12gb Crucial DDR3 1600.

imi....where do you have been? 🤣

RAM-day today. Think 50€ is quite OK for this. I see many 30-PIN modules which are not easy to get for cheap...

Got some graphic cards from a guy, who collects precious metals from them. He accepted my offer, so I bought them from him. One of the cards didn't make it however (see picture). Luckily some of them were left intact, others are missing heatsinks and fans. Are there any highlights among them? I am thinking of buying aftermarket heatsinks for the cards that are worth saving. Which one of the missing heatsink cards diserve another chance 😀 ?

I was browsing on eBay and something caught my eye, something that I've never really had a lot of interest in seeking before, but decided on a whim to go ahead and bid for and win - a Sinclair ZX81!

mBosXEil.jpg

The seller's picture was a little blurry, but it looks practically the same as the image above, with the same white addon keyboard, albeit the ZX81 logo is not red.

I'll look out for the 16K RAM expansion soon, might get one for Christmas.

But this is now officially the lowest specced, least capable computer system I own. Well, something had to fulfil that role and I'd rather it be this. 🤣

some nice cards I have a few of those, what cards are you hunting for?

I am looking for Rendition Vérité and S3 Virge version that match the others being 4mb and from 96-97. I prefer boxed version. Also Ati Rage II+ or II+DVD in box.

Were you successful at reviving the broken GF4 Ti?

I haven't gotten around to that yet.

Ancient memories... that beast was terribly slow and limited when I had it - with 16MB RAM pacl - as a schoolboy back in the early 1980s. And it had possibly the only keyboard worse than the current MacBook range. Even with prosthetic keyboard like this it was painful. But it was the first computer <100GBP and for that alone worthy of its place in history.

I think you mean 16KB rather than 16MB unless I way underestimated what an 8-bit is capable of.
