ISA Cards

Postby manuka on Mon Mar 25, 2013 10:19 am

I'm going to start listing ISA cards on TradeMe. What I'm thinking about is 3 similar cards per listing untested (I really don't get the time for testing these). I was going to start with audio and video cards. I was wondering are there any other types of cards that are worth sticking up?

Thanks.

Network cards although you may want a bulk auction for those. I bought a box for $5 a few months back, so don't think there is a huge demand.

IO cards are a good one - I need to stock up myself. If you find any spare MFM/Winchester/RLL controllers they should provide good results.

Oh and if you see full length cards that have an 8 bit ISA connector at one end, and a weird connector that looks like PCI at the other - those are VLBus cards (486 performance stuff). Noticed it in your ISA video card auction, but anybody buying these cards should know this, so I didn't mention it earlier.

I've got a few new network cards - mostly PCI but a few ISA, 10baseT mostly with win98,XP,DOS drivers also some 11 MPS wireless cards so I'll put those up first before doing bulk lots unless other people are in the need of them.

Will look out for I/O cards.

Thanks for the heads up on the VLBus cards, I'll probably list those separately in the future

Cheers for the heads up. Not after anything myself at the moment but it's nice to window shop ;)
