    I have lots of PCI VGA and sound cards already. But thanks anyway.

    I'd probably play with it a bit and bag it up and store it forever, like I do with so much other hardware :)

    I'll stay out for the same reason. A neat set of cards, but I have more than enough neat things waiting to be used.

    if you want to make sure he gets something for it, I'll bid $20 on it (then pay whatever postage he decides if you don't want to pay more I guess).

    Otherwise not fussed either way.

    hmm Could this be a remarked gpu with the heatsinks moved across? I cant find any pics of that model with the exact same board layout. It could be recapped but they are in a different placement too. Many of that sellers past sales has been selling advertised as so broken gpus with one arriving broken

    Looks legit? The Ti4200 was the lowest end of the Ti4x00 series, I don’t know what it’d be rebadged from.

    Idk. Thinking it could it be a remarked gf4 mx with a new sticker on the video adapter? Just weird how it doesnt match up with pics for that brand and model or any ti4200 that doesnt go back to that ebay sale.

    This ti4400 looks okay priced too but a whole processor chip looks missing to the left of the gpu fan https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/265084625225
    ref pic http://hw-museum.cz/data/vga/pic/MSI_GeForce4_Ti_4400_F.jpg . eh now i remember why 15 years ago i didnt hunt down the cheap parts on ebay except now I wanna get back into 'retro' stuff.

    The missing chip is possibly for some sort of VIVO feature. I wouldn't buy one of these cards from European sellers - once you get it, you can't send it back in good time if something is wrong. These cards come up fairly often locally I don't think you'll have to wait too long to find one.

    Plus thats a lot to pay for a ti4400... keep a look out, they come and go pretty cheap sometimes..

    +1 to both of the above. The bits you need will come sooner or later... rushing can get expensive!

    This ATX socket 7 motherboard looks like a decent deal. Built-in Yamaha audio with some sort of midi capability, plus 233Mhz CPU and RAM. Just add video card and ATX case and you're up and running.

    I'm not sure what the dark red connector is for, perhaps SCSI?

    Interesting board! The "red connector" looks like a cover for the front panel pin headers (you can see the silk screen labels in one of the photos)

    I'd be tempted if it was AU. That GM chip is an OPL4 which doesn't OPL3 + GM support. GM sound is pretty nasty though from memory.
