Sound Blaster Awe 64 Gold

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so i recently picked up some computer parts from an old man who wanted to get rid of them, included 10 useless cd drives and a few crappy old LAN cards, but also a sound blaster card model CT4390... my question is if i managed to find a little gold piece or is it just some useless old junk (its literally gold so its a gold piece nonetheless)

 

(thought i'd throw it here since i have no clue where i'm supposed to go with such a question)

It's gold plated, so you're looking at a tiny fraction of a gram of gold. I doubt that it's even $1 of gold.

The card does sell on eBay for around $75-100 though, so it's not exactly worthless junk.

i saw that, but do they sell? i can't really get statistics on that, and its such a niche, i might not even be able to sell it all in holland...

 

Edit: i mean, can i sell it in holland, since i dont have a credit card and don't really use ebay, i'm somewhat restricted to our local market within BeNeLux

8 sold in the US in the past 90 days, so there seems to be a fairly strong market for these things. These were used for audio production, and legacy hardware is often in demand in that industry.
