    Way back then I was building systems for a now long out of business distributor and we used to do high end gaming systems with the DFI LAN Party boards. That graphic on the motherboard box takes me back!

    I was never really a fan of DFI motherboards mainly because of the headaches and hassles we had with their entry level desktop boards. The LAN Party's were the definitely the exception as you can see they went great lengths to design and create really good boards, but their cheapo stuff it just looked as if they didn't give a shit. These days they are focused on doing industrial/embedded boards and from what I've heard they are of good quality. They must of sacked the guys responsible for the desktop crap lol.

    A mate is moving house, and asked if I wanted his old computer.
    I actually built it for him, back in the day.

    From memory:
    Tt Xaser 3 case, with AMD XP2500+ @3200, 2Gb ram and a GeForce4 or 5.

    Still have a few other things to get off him, including a Logitech G25 steering wheel setup. (I had one, he then promptly got one :thumbup:)

    The case is heavier than I remember, guess I was going to the gym back then too.

    Might have a look at it in a week or so when I get back from work.

    Noice, it's great to see a system go full circle back to its creator (and therefore rightful owner :Pirate:)

    I like your style.
    It was actually the best system that I had built back then, for the budget, that had to include a few things, including a photo quality colour printer.
    He offered that too.

    What's that old saying? When it rains, it pours?

    I've been searching high and low for a few years now to find Atari PC's to not only complete my collection but most importantly to fill in the gaps on my website on these PC's as there is so little information out there. Had my fair share of luck, picked up a few PC3's as they were the most widespread model. Got very lucky a while back when I brought a PC5 from Germany, never seen another since. But as for the PC1 (rare), PC2 (very rare) and PC4 (rare), they've almost felt like at times being a lost cause.

    This past week it seems the stars have finally aligned. :)

    Random search last week on eBay.de, I found an Atari PC2 which had only just been listed with a 10 day auction. There was no way I was going to risk someone else pinching it and I'd be damned if I was going to wait 10 days to find out. Sent the seller a message making an offer he couldn't refuse. It arrived at my German freight forwarder (mailboxde.com) on Friday and should ship out to me this week. :leet:

    8088 CPU, 512K of RAM. Not in the best of shape, is missing the HDD or second floppy drive depending on what config it originally had. Easily fixed though as I have spares. Comes with a bonus original mouse which will go very nicely with the original monitor and keyboard I already have for it.

    Then today, I was looking for a link I had lost and stumbled upon an eBay.it listing for an Atari PC4. Couldn't believe my eyes especially considering it was actually reasonably priced but the catch was he only listed postage to Italy only. Quickly sent him a message to see if postage to Australia or even my freight forwarder in Germany was an option. Wouldn't do postage to Australia but was ok with Germany, sweet. :thumbup:

    80286 16 MHz CPU, 1MB of RAM (upgradable to 8MB) and there *should* be a HDD below the floppy drive hidden behind the grey panel. Looks like it comes with the original non Atari branded keyboard plus a bonus copy of the GW-Basic manual in Italian. Bellissimo!

    Can't wait for these to arrive. :thumbup::thumbup:

    Now where in the hell am I going to put them..................:wired:
