Finally got myself an X800 series flagship card, an X800XT PE:

Sapphire-Radeon-X800-XT-PE.jpg

It has apparently suffered a broken cap (that apparently also tore out the solder pad) at some point, and someone fixed it like this:

Sapphire-Radeon-X800-XT-PE-Repair.jpg

Not pretty but seller assures me it works, and if it really does I'm OK with it. I will go ahead and test it tonight.

Here's the happy family altogether:

Buying too much at the moment..but price was good and looks interesting

Crap seller pic, but I'd have jumped too if the price was right 😀

- right bottom: 8-bit EGA/VGA?

Those dual oscillators certainly suggest something like that - or an early VGA with both DE15 and DE9 connectors.

- Dual P2 Mainboard with AGP

Yep, P2B-DS 😀

- MFM controller

Or RLL - in any event some kind of ST-506 beast. Looks like an 8b XT version, in which case you really need to replace the missing ROMs. If the P2B-DS parallel port is hiding a 16b ISA connector you don't of course.

- some AT S7 boards, unfortunately without AGP

Unless I'm mistaken two of them are the legendary P55T2P4 (the ones with funny brown Mediabus 2.0 connector in front of the bottom PCI slot), which are more interesting than most AGP-bearing SS7 boards.

- 4 VLB cards
- Mozart + Aztech Soundcard

Many ICs missing, but doesnt look that bad. If not working I get new spare parts...

Indeed, although the completely missing socket on the board to the left of the P2B-DS will be more challenging.

I also like the 3Com ISA NICs, the 16b ISA CDRom interface with audio-out on the back (you can abuse those nice IEC connectors for your soundcard too 😉 ) and Matrox Mysique. Wonder what all those blue things are with PCIe1x connectors scattered all over...

Yes, good observation 😎 The photo was only available in low-res, I have upscaled it to sse something. Also asked about these blue things, will report. I also like these CDROm-controllers. In case its an IDE you can also use it together with XT-IDE to get your system booted.
Will report when it arrives...

Bought this lot yesterday from a hoarder: 8 desktops PCs ranging from Socket 7 to Pentium 4. 3 old keyboards, loads of floppies and 30-pin and 72-pin RAM sticks.

I might resell most of these locally without even cleaning them as It's not really an era I'm passionate about and I don't have so much time to spend on them, but of course I'll look if there are any interesting cards in them first...

That 'EGT Cirius 3000' looks interesting.

That's the odd one. Looks like a proprietary system designed for telecommunications (Telex, Teletex, Fax). I don't know what's in there yet or if it would be even possible to turn it into a DOS or windows machine.

I have absolutely no interest for these OEM systems so I'm not sure what to do with them at this stage 😕 Actually everytime I see a case where the 3.5" floppy drive or CD-Rom drive is hidden behind a weird proprietary bezel I run away 🤣

You must find a way! That's a cool looking chassis.

The Amiga 2000 I modified right before it was sent off to the museum. 2MB RAM, Indivision ECS Scandoubler/Flicker Fixer and a Lotharek HXC Rev F SD drive. Keeping it classic.

Ebay coupon for 15% off today.. ended up scoring a few items.
- Doom 2 CD-ROM version in big box ($39)
- Duke Nukem 3D Caribbean "Life's a Beach" in big box ($63)
- Pentium MMX machine for $67 shipped.. I was mostly interested in the case for my 486 build, since these are somewhat hard to come by for under $100. I have a MHz display on hand that I'll be putting in it, if it doesn't have one already. Pics:

It's possible to restore a torn solder pad by pulling one from a dead card and gluing it to the PCB with silicone sealant. Then solder everything carefully and no one will notice.

Okay this one has an *IBM* DX4-100 on it. That's nice, I had an IBM SLC 166 back in the day.

The MB looks like a PC Chips, albeit the cache might actually be real (it's at least socketed and doesn't have "WRITE BACK" printed on it). The CPU is either a Cyrix manufactured and branded by IBM or an Intel DX4 manufactured and branded by IBM; I'm still fuzzy on which it is with the 486 chips...

The CPU is Cyrix compatible.

Yes, it is. Dead Dallas RTC battery, but that's an easy fix. :cool:

Okay, weird. I sold that exact board (unpopulated - no CPU, RAM, or cards) in that exact case to a local guy a couple years ago. I'm on the west coast, but things do move around... Would be pretty neat if it's the same system!

Where is it getting shipped from?

It is the version 2 of that scandoubler. Same company (Individual). On paper they have made it better, and they did not lie, when they told that would cost the same as the original version. I have no clue on, if it can be stacked and give dual monitor output. I am going to use my IndevisionECS V2 in my Amiga600. It is a recapped machine, and I am going to keep it classic as well. To a degree that is. I have the A604n ram upgrade installed, in order to have the IndevisionECS-V2 working. And it will allow me to use the RapidRoad USB upgrade, if I find some kind of way to install the USB-Ports somewere nice in the case. If I choose the USB upgrade, then I will be upgrading my machine to the new 3.1.4 AmigaOS released a couple of month's ago.

Nice 2000 by the way. I totally get, if they are happy with it. It must have been hard to let it go.

West Virginia is where it says it ships from.

A huge find for me today, literally. This black tower of power has all the bells and whistles for its time. I will be cleaning this sweetheart up over the next couple of weeks piece by piece. A physicist from a university used to own this beast, I was told, and I found it in an old hardware shop. I wont say what I paid, but it wasn't cheap nor was it too expensive either. Once I have it all cleaned up this will be my main software imaging system and software archive box.

Initial turn on reveals the A: drive (3½") pulls up just fine, but B: (5¼") doesn't seem to want to cooperate. Haven't had a chance to play around too much though.
