Quattro was a singer and a car.
Right lol ;-)
It isn't like I buy those cards, I'd rather the car thanks.
And don't forget those FlyGL cards from ATI.
Dont forget to add GST to that. Ebay au is a bit dodge. Stuff from amazon uk and us on the Aust site has taxes included. Aliexpress doesnt because the sites overseas but ebay au shows overseas stuff without it until you go to pay then bam extra 10%.
Anyway I asked that seller for pics so I can confirm the chipset. When I get it Ill post it here. Kinda want a a3d more but this would be nice for dos on the pci bus
If anyone in perth is looking for a Intel BX system:

I had to double-check I was still in the right sub-forum.
Interesting SBC & backplane 486 system in Balmain for $120.
Looks ISA backplane, interesting vaguely remember this style of computer. Wonder if the motherboard is ( 386 + maths copro ) or 486, which was a thing back then. Did like the NE2000 boot floppy no guessing the network adapter, might even be a network boot loader.
You snooze, you lose I guess (sold already)
Heres the pic I got from the seller. Looks like the standard 1.2 ESS board so it is missing the wavetable header and top right headers but has the sblink header. Never did work out what the top right most header is supposed to be.
The CN3 header? Looks like the I and O pins are connected to pins 26 and 25 on the ES1938S, which are MONO_IN and MONO_OUT
I have some crt tv i am looking to part ways with. I have 1x Panasonic 68cm and a Palsonic I think 51cm. I do have a Godzilla LG must be about 80cm I haven’t listed. The Panasonic does component. Others do composite. In Brisbane inner city.
It could be hot garbage but that Legend branded keyboard up the back has a bit of Model M about it:

I think that's a Mitsumi based off the curved section which borders the keys and the NUM lock etc LED's are done in the same style, in fact it may even be this XT/AT switchable version. I have the AT only version of the KPQ-E99YC and the keyboard cable comes from the right hand side not the left.
I think Mitsumi basically had the OEM market cornered in the early 90's as they've been many times over rebadged by various OEM's. Atari used their AT only version of the KPQ-E99YC with the Atari PC4 286 with some minor modifications (the LED's above the number pad were in the slanted "Atari" style they liked to do their LED's in) and Commodore also used them with some of their PC's too I believe.
I think they are a nice looking keyboard and not to bad to type on either but the keys can feel a little bit squishy when typing due to the rubber domes under the keys.
Super clean & good looking 286 machine in Moonee Ponds VIC, and a very thorough listing too! Currently $78 but might not stay that way ...
I've got the XT version of this (with V30 (8086) processor, not 8088 processor). It is quite an unusual layout with a backplane layout. This AT version is less strange, but still the same case, you couldn't drop a normal Baby AT motherboard into it.
On mine, the 3.5inch 1.44meg floppy drive is not standard, and wasn't working when I got it. I had to replace several capacitors on it to get it to work again. It also required specific versions of MS-DOS 3.3 or 4.0 for the floppy drive to work correctly. Hopefully the 1.44meg floppy drive is more standard and doesn't require special dos to work.
Not to put anyone off, they are a pretty cool machine, just stuff to watch for.
I guess this dude didn’t snooze...
