    I imagine those two with 5.25" bay adaptors could be very useful.

    This here is an ES1868 that is less capable than most, as it has no WT header or gameport. But I spent a lot of time scouring Compaq OEM cards looking for my white whale before I found it, so I know how infrequently these appear at a reasonable price. If some other weirdo happens to be looking for the last piece of their Presario puzzle, this might be it. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/265312620363

    I'd say you could stick it in this horror, but it already has one on board :leet: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/234188111780

    This is the PC I looked for for about 10 years - almost exactly the right case, OPTi 486 motherboard, mitsumi 4X CD-ROM. It's finally appeared on eBay and it's too late, I'm not interested in 486s in desktop cases anymore because I know I won't use it while my Cyrix exists, oh well!

    Not cheap but looks to be in nice condition: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/114992802635?hash=item1ac61aeb4b:g:UG0AAOSwiP5hPHWG

    That Day of the Tenacle box looks to be worth a good $300 on its own....(assuming complete).

    Unfortunately they're about as far away from me as they can be, while still being in the state.

    Let's hope they went to a collector but chances are they will be flipped on eBay for stupid prices. :(
