Thoughts of a geek

Free stuff

I have a few computer bits and pieces to get rid of, so I thought it best before throwing them out to check whether anyone might want any of them. So, does anyone want any of the following:

  • An AMD Sempron processor (I cannot remember the exact model number, but around 1.8 GHz), with heatsink and fan.
  • An SBus framebuffer (graphics card), to suit a Sun Sparcstation of some sort. It takes up two SBus sockets, and has the usual 13W3 connector that Sun used to use for their monitors.
  • An external audio adapter for a Sun Sparcstation with the appropriate socket. It has a speaker, microphone, volume controls and line in / out sockets.
  • Various old PCI graphics cards, and I think some AGP ones too, possibly not so old.
  • Various PCI sound cards.

All of that is free to anyone who wants it, so let me know soon if you are interested in any of it. I also have various other bits and pieces that I might be persuaded to part with, so let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

  1. I’d be interested in the processor if it’d fit in my PC and is better than a celeron. I’d also be interested in graphics cards seeing as I always think the more monitors a computer has, the better hehe

    • I am pretty sure the processor is one of the Socket A models, so it should fit in any Socket A motherboard.
      Which graphics cards (PCI or AGP) do you want and how many? Probably it is easiest if you come round and have a look. Just make sure to check first what you can fit.

  2. Hi. Do you still have the SBUS framebuffer? Please let me know if it’s still available.

    • Ah, no. Sorry. I threw it out just a couple of weeks ago.
