Never a bad day when I get to visit TC...

The scores:
1) New in sealed box 3DFX voodoo3 2000 PCI
2) New open box ATI Radeon 9000 AGP 128mb
3) Linksys Nighthawk wifi router DD-WRT compatible
4) Really rough condition Aopen socket7 retro rig (I spent all day today restoring it)
5) Supermicro mATX case
And in return, I got another eATX SM chassis... one of the big 8x SAS ones. (Built it up last night, will post in the relevant thread later).

The Voodoo card was part of a vanload I got back in my soph. year of HS... It's on the forum somewhere. All sorts of fun stuff back then.

The 9000 pro was a $15 thrift store find from last year (I think it's in a post in this thread?)

The Router is a netgear R7000 that I paid about $1 for... same model as what I use at home. Runs DD-WRT very well.

The aOpen was another thrift store score for February... that I never got off the ground. Socket 7 ATX... only just socket 7, not super 7 (Intel chipset???). Must have been very early ATX; the board has both SDRAM and EDO sockets!

The SM case was a cheap ebay find that was intended for an X7DCA build but wasn't even close to fitting. Not branded as SM, but the components, layout, and front panel cable indicate that it was SM made for a SM board (probably one of their single CPU boards?)

I got a box of Voodoo cards from my private hording group I had to trade my stash of Nvidia cards. As far as passion goes I lost but $ wise I'm sure I win Voodoo freaks are crazy stupid and will pay crazy prices for Voodoo crap.��

Scored an ASUS G70S before heading home.

Works fine, but had to scrap both GPUs (2x 8700M GT) as whatever monkey tried to do a reflow on them literally popcorned the PCBs on both. No wonder everything was shorting.

Will also need to adapt the heatsinks to acommodate Acer cards, and either edit the BIOS to take a 9300M, or adapt a 8600M GT MXM in there.

Some unopened 3dfx goodness!!



Film sliced....I asked Ratdude if he wanted to do the honors.... He declined.



First time this beauty has seen daylight in 21 years!



Not even a smudge!





Now for the radeon 9000. This one was an open box, the card was never used.



Not a smudge, scrape from screw or speck of dust in the fan.





Good stuff!

WOW!

Really cool cards, though.
Despite not having been powered in 20-odd years, I see no electrolytic caps on the VooDoo, so no surprise it was just fine.

And even for the Radeon 9000 Pro, I'm not worried. Those Nichicon HC caps are pretty good. Also, looks like that 9000 Pro has the better/faster BGA RAM. Would be interesting to see which card performs better in older games. From what I've read before online, despite the VooDoo 3 and newer being very efficient and quite good for old games, cards like GeForce 3 and Radeon 8500 and 9000 were already surpassing them in speed, despite using Direct-X (which is slower and less efficient than Glide.)

Make sure to keep them boxes safe, especially that of the VooDoo. Some people pay a good chunk of money even just for that, lol.
Though I must admit, the boxes of VooDoo 3 and VooDoo 5 looks pretty cool, actually.

Scored these today:

Nintendo Wii, model RVL-001 (1st gen) - working, already done a shell swap on it
PS3 CECHC04 - YLOD, suspecting NEC TOKIN (though RSX isn't out of the equation)
Fujitsu MPB3032AT - completes seek test successfully, haven't looked deeper into it

Default Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

I found a few older PCs today, the first one is a Gateway PC with an Intel Celeron processor, i need to pop it open and test it to see what the other specs are. The second one is a heavy Dell PC with an Intel Pentium 3 processor, i still need to test it, but i'm betting it still works (but i may need to reseat the RAM for it to work). The third one (and the saddest looking of the three) is a Future Power PC with an Intel Celeron processor, now i have not tested it yet, but I'm willing to bet it will not work, as (according to the owner) it has been sitting outside for 5 years, not only that, but it has been sitting in water for some time too.

I still need to go through and test them and check what their specs are in full, but until then, these will be sitting in my workshop.
