Re: Future retro classics?

Not point worrying about stashing new crap. I predict many of the highend current boards
will not stand the test of time. They're too complex & fragile IMO.

Re: Future retro classics?

Is it your birthday AtariPC.net ?

Not forgotten all the help you gave me. Works out about $110 shipped if I bundle with other parts.
Thanks to Buubox who linked it.

Re: K7 and P3 Win98se gaming builds

The plating is eaten on the ports. Best try a tiny amount of rust converter, dampen tissue / cloth with it.
That will leave a Phosphoric coating. Caution with eyes. Washes hands well
later.

Re: [GC] Some AGP cards

The 7600gs will not be popular, lucky even to make $15
7600GT though I'll buy these for $10US max sometimes if they are interesting.

Your sale will attract buyers here if you put up a bigger selection. x1 lot of postage
is the idea on bulk purchase. That's just how a collector see's the costing. ;)

From France that one.
