Couple recent gets for me:
I thought I missed out on the run of these cheap(ish) K6-2+/550s on The Big Auction Site, but the seller posted a few more after I made some sales to buff up my "random gadget" fund, so I bit. This is arguably the fastest thing you can put in a Super Socket 7 board (and one of the last, best chips in my personal favorite retro CPU line), so it's nice to have.
I haven't tested it yet, but it looks to be in excellent condition top & bottom. The seller shipped it well packaged in a box, so no complaints there. Weirdly, despite the auction saying it would ship from China, the shipment seems to have originated in Mississauga, Ontario and got to me in just over a week. So either the seller has enough of these to be warehousing them in multiple locations, or they're using some kind of really fast freight forwarder. I've seen both of those scenarios before, but never for a low-volume, out-of-production used part like this.
The other thing I picked up was my own Matrox G200 Quad, inspired by imi's pickups a couple pages ago. Mine even has the TV tuner option which I can actually use (for old 8-bit PCs and game consoles with RF output. 😀 ) Unfortunately it turned out to be a bit of a repair project, but I got it cheap enough it's worth trying to fix.
If you think these two items could maybe be used together in some sort of wacky project build, well, you're not wrong.
