soo... I got another mystery PC ^^
Nice find, the Asus 386 mobo is fantastic ! Too bad about the Compaq (but personally hate those all-in-ones).

Free Antec full tower with 2 SCSI Plextor drivers (only reason I drove 150 km to get it). Some Asus socket 940 mainboard on the inside and some IDE/SATA drives, but I'm chuffed that I finally have the Plextor SCSI back I wanted.
Got three AT-boxes for € 50, one has a low-end onboard TI 486SLC with a socketed coprocessor, the others have 430FX based Pentium boards, nothing fancy and probably a low-end P54C.
I've never seen ULSI as a brand of processing units.
Good price on all that !

I got a Rendition Vérité V2100 at recycle center.
Is this card better than Rage/II for DOS and early 3d games?
Check this topic here: Rendition Verite Thread
Ok so today stopped at TC thrift store (my fav in this town) and got a Micron Millennia Mme tower plus Micron CRT 17" monitor for $125 USD total plus two NOS old AT/PS2 keyboards (one a Mouse Systems the other a Memorex) for $5 USD
(with my senior discount ). They gave me a 3 day return if they do not work but I have high hopes. Have not tested anything yet but they let me open the tower before purchase and everything was there including original Micron screw-on blue heatsink.
Hopefully it all works. Here is a picture of PC+CRT after loading on the pickup truck:
Hate posting a reply and then have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor.
