i'm driving past later today .....
Get thee behind me, Satan!
MS Sidewinder 3D Pro - ugly as sin but a great stick, and this one comes with a box!
Not sure if this is retro enough but it sure is a good bargain.
Awesome dude only charged me an extra $15 to post it out regeistered.
so 6 pokemon games for the 3DS at 40 shipped.
Just be aware these MS sticks are Windows only, they don't work in pure DOS unfortunately :-(
Yeah nar they work fine in DOS.
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!
Cyrix 83s87 25mhz co processor
Seems ok. Socket 3 board
Black desktop case; $10 pickup.
It has gone, thank you. The guy said he had someone who flaked, so I saved it all on Monday.
Peeking as I moved it all, I spied a socket 939 in there too. Will be sorted through and cleaned up shortly.
If anyone would like the keyboard or speakers from my $36 ebay system pictured above please PM me.
Edit: sorry wrong thread, added picture below.
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?
Gumtree freebie keyboards, maybe at least one having DIN plug

Appear to have gone
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).
Another useful driver source, including for CMI8738 is http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-free-for-all-driver-guide/
Epix stick for the NES - I think these are well regarded for the C64 so assume the NES version is OK too; don't see many of them anyway and this is boxed:
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..
I get the feeling it's about 12" max and is black and white only.
