Of course, as always, I'm open to correction...😉

I picked up a mint-in-box, unopened Samsung SyncMaster 931B (Black) LCD monitor (XP-era monitor) at a local Goodwill, for less than $30. 19-inch, SXGA monitor with 8ms refresh rate. It will be an excellent find for someone who wants to throw together a vintage-correct system. I also found a tobacco-particle covered Logitech Wingman USB joystick, which looks to be in good condition.

I got a new PSU for my 286, which sits in a low profile case (is that IPX? Not sure...), anyhow, it's replacing a doggy AT PSU.

However, this is a Seasonic SSP-300SFB 300W 80 Plus Bronze SFX. I haven't tested it yet, I hope it will do. It even came with a SPX to ATX mounting backet (yay!). I have an ATX to AT converter cable that also does -5v, so assume its all going to be okay...

Finally found a matching monitor for my Aptiva setup. IBM model 6327-022. After cleaning and repairs, it turned out to be really good one. Left hinge for the controls door is broken, but it stays in place when closed. Other than that, it is now near perfect condition.

When I got it, it didn't show any image. Had to replace couple of capacitors and redo some solder joints on the neck board to get it going. VGA connector was crushed, so I had to straighten it. It was very tidy inside, almost no dust at all. It has nice Panasonic tube, that is really bright, colorful and sharp across the screen.

Only thing is, for some reason Aptiva's Creative Graphics Blaster EXXTREME (Permedia 2) won't output anyhing greater than 800x600@85Hz for it. When I was testing the monitor on another machine with S3 Savage4 Pro, it went up to 1280x1024@75Hz.

That’s a nice looking setup you’ve got there. So many nice, clean, understated IBM desktop units going back so many years. Now if only I had the desk space…

A bit of a glutton for dual-chip VGA / GPUs - no matter how much they struggled at the time. There’s something haphazard and inelegant about a dual-chip ‘solution’. Needless to say, I must have these quirky, cantankerous beasts.

ATI Rage Fury Maxx. Now to find a stable driver release for both Win98 and 2000.

OK... so... I bought this Amiga accelerator recently...
😜

In the context of it all.... Then. 😁 😁 😁 You cracked me up.
How good is it, and what big box is it for?

Nice.... Congrats. It is a little sweet system. Are you planning on upgrading it with something?

Bought a set of Kickstart 3.1 Roms for my Amiga 1200. It turns out that TF-1230 will not work fully with Kick 3.0
It was not mentioned at the sellers product page, and so I found a Cloanto branded version.
The issue with running 3.0 is that the TF-1230 will not automatically add the memory that are onboard.

Speaking of TF-1230, it is a nice piece of hardware.... I also recieved that angled CF-IDE adaptor. Makes it look clean.

Can you move the Amiga discussion somewhere else please?

I will always post images/pictures of any type of hardware that I bought. Even Amiga.
Yes, Piccoline machines as well, if I ever have the money and space for it.

I will keep one stock. The other I intend to up grade when time and funds permit. I was surprised here clear and flicker free the second hand lcd SONY tv was. It's great! No need for scan doublers or any of that no nonsense is need at all. Just hook the A6oo straight up to it. I really am a x86 but when these showed up over a couple of months on or local auction site at an amazingly low "buy it now" price I snapped them up. One previous owner was going back to the UK just wanted to get rid of it. It still has the UK power plug on it and I use an adapter to use on on our power sockets.

So it is a PAL version? You need one single thing for the 600. That is the relokick disk. It reboot's the 600 into Kick 1.3 for those few pesky titles.
Else it is great that you have an CRT to display the video signal. Personally I am using good speakers for all my vintage computer's.
That is anything Dos, C64 and Amiga, as I find that speakers in tv's and monitors are always crap.

It's for Amiga 2000 (pretty much the only one which interests me - I have 3 such systems right now, at one point this year I had 9... One of these 3 is for sale and other 2 will stay with me indefinitely 😉 ). It's 68020@14Mhz so it's not great but not terrible either - around twice as fast as 68000. A2620 is one of the two original Commodore accelerators for A2000 (other one being A2630). It was OE for A2500. It let's you run Amiga Unix - main purpose why I was interested in it. For now I have it in a machine with A2091 SCSI controller and Vortex GoldenGate bridgeboard which I will probably move to the other machine (replacing it with A2088 bridgeboard I have) if I figure out why it doesn't want to boot with it onboard (may be easier than It looks - I havn't moved it with the CPU adapter when I first installed the card in it for tests).

Great find, congrats!
Afaik there are no drivers that work reliably for Win2k or Win XP, but I'd be happy to be proven wrong. I have one of these cards in my collection as well.

Ever since the recap of my KT3 Ultra2 failed to resurrect it (and it seems to have killed 2 Socket A CPU's in the process.. Grrr..) I was on the lookout for a universal AGP Socket A board with AthlonXP support. Well, finally I found one for ten bucks. MicroATX, so I can actually build a fairly small and fast Voodoo 3 with it. No idea what CPU it comes with, but beggars can't be choosers.
