    Just be aware these MS sticks are Windows only, they don't work in pure DOS unfortunately :-(

    Never seen these for sale I thought it was a mythical creature, Evergreen 5x86-133(cyrix version) boxed as new.

    Might go for $1,500USD+

    Thought I saw this buy it now for around $300 and wouldn't have batted an eyelid but it's an auction, not going to bother:upset:!

    Oh man, beige speakers with a powerwoofer! Would be perfect if post wouldn’t be a killer.
    Someone’s getting a score!

    I had them speakers in the early 2000s I remember they kinda sucked. I didn't use them much because this is the point when I started going to lan partys and went to headphones.

    Nice game controller for its time. I've still got a working Logitech Wingman Cordless Rumblepad from around the 2002 era. Great controller. Although very weighty and uses 4xAA batteries. Great for emulation and retro gaming.

    I haven't tried them but I'm not surprised. There's not a lot of weight to them and they're very plasticky. However, they have a great retro look which is sought after by some. I wonder if you could replace the innards with the drivers from a newish set of 2.1 speakers?

    This could be handy/interesting if you want a cheap PCI sound card

    A Jetway 738S1 (C-Media CMI8738) for $7.50pp: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/283876510269

    Phil has covered the chipset: https://www.philscomputerlab.com/c-media-cmi8738.html

    Archive.org has an archive of the website, including the driver files: https://web.archive.org/web/20020204124108/http://www.jetway.com.tw/evisn/index.html
    (Select 738S1 Sound from the drop down box)

    (You can get new really generic CMI8738 cards for only a little more, but judging from the generic ESS Solo1 debacle of 2018 - with an amplified output to the point of distortion at any volume - I'd avoid).

    This 4-channel observation system (CRT) might be useful for hooking up some old consoles. Apparently new in box, never used..

    I have no idea how big the screen is, but there are some pics here https://www.recycledgoods.com/radio-shack-49-250-i-vss-400-4-channel-observation-monitor/

    If you don't have room for a CRT maybe a beige LCD would fit the bill. It's got some retro vibes..
