    A couple of cheapish computers with CRTs for anyone interested in Perth:

    Pentium 166 -> probably s3 Video -> Early Sound blaster 16 -> early DVD drive ... all in what looks to be an old XT or 286 style case. With CRT and speakers

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Vintage-Computer/124554266092

    Pentium 3 800 -> HP vectra with onboard video, but AGP port too -> onboard sound ... with CRT that contains speakers it looks like.

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Vintage-Computer-HP-Vectra-P3/124564350348

    Both will need lots of cleanup, but make good bases for a great retro system.

    Yeah, I was considering it just because of the philips monitor stand. I'm a sucker for unusual speaker systems.

    I had a Philips 107E without the speakers in around 2001-2002 I think it was. Will be nice to have that attached to the retro setup. Might clean up the rest of the machine and resell it, might keep it as a "spare" (already have far too many spares), I'm not sure yet - counting my chickens before they hatch, given my offer hasn't been accepted yet!

    I considered asking about the speakers on the other system, as I also had a set of these JUSTer speakers back in the day - for what they were, they sounded great.

    Just got a notification - offer accepted, arranging pickup with the seller now :) Happy days. Will bang up some more pics/info into the retro activity thread when I have it all in my hot little hands.

    There's 211 pieces available, so if we don't go spreading the word too much I think we should covered on this forum.

    If more than one person in Perth is interested perhaps we could try a bulk buy and reduce the postage?

    Wouldn't that be a fun exercise. A bunch of us buy them and have a build-off.

    Bummer, looks like the postage cost increases linearly with the number of items purchased.

    Bugger - would have happily split postage 50/50 if you bought a pair. I *really* don't need another Socket 7 machine; I don't even have anything to put it into.

    Is there anyone in Brisbane that would like: dual xeon x5650s, mother board, dell case, and dell psu. I dont know for certain but it think it works. No ram in it to check.

    Probably best placing this in the retro for sale forum.
