I have more stuff coming soon, and I'll probably be updating this post a bit.

All parts are (for now) untested and as-is. I should be able to test them soon, though. All parts will have sales tax and shipping from 77063 added on to the purchase (unless you want to pick the parts up, in which case only tax would apply.

Thanks for looking!

May I see a picture of the Cheetah 8-bit MIDI card, please? I've never seen one manufactured by Cheetah before, only Music Quest, Roland, and Passport are the ones I've seen.

It looks like the MIDI card is actually still sealed, so I didn't open it any further.
Any cards with bent brackets will be bent into the right shape if you buy them. I'm guessing the person uninstalling them was either not careful or dropped them. With the way most are bent I'm guessing the first one. Some of the chips are in rough shape, likely due to storage conditions. If they don't work right, I can refund the amount it costs you to fix it, or I can take them back.

Thanks!

Oh! I didn't get pictures of the MIDI card connectors, they look like bizarre phone jacks, too big to be RJ11 but too small to be RJ45 (I think). I'll try to add them in a bit. Some of the pictures are pretty bad imo.

Classic Technology Corporation 286 Speed Pak ($150) - Its OK for me.


Empty RAM expansion card ($50) - I seek bigger than 512k option
Cheetah 8-bit MIDI Card ($75) - Second on the line


QDP Viva w/Box ($100)
Photon 800 Hi-Res Graphics Card ($100) - These are somethink like special accelerators i think instead of graphics card so i withdrawn.
