I'm going to put my BFG 6800 Ultra OC AGP 8X in a shadow box and hang it on the wall of the 'computer room', it looks really cool. Good thing it's got a lifetime warranty!

BFG: Big Fat Geforce

It was a thiccc card for the time, double slot with a blower shoving a ton of hot air into your case instead of blowing it out the back because that wasn't the thing yet for some unknown reason.

 

BFG, for those too young, was the premier company of awesome products. They took the 6800 Ultra, clocked it up to 425 core from 400, made sure it was stable, flashed the BIOS to make it a permanent overclock, and then replaced the TIM with Arctic Silver 5 (I think, maybe 5 wasn't out yet?), and shipped it off with a lifetime warranty and a trade in program. If it ever fails you RMA and they send you either another one, an equivalent, or a hefty discount on a current replacement item. If it got too old you could send it back in and get a discount (from their store) on a new product. Of course this was NOT a sustainable business model and they went under a while back, but I have several of their video cards, one of which I killed a few years ago due to physical damage, but the others are still working as far as I know. Their 7800 Ultra's in SLI were pretty cool at the time.

I just found this bad boy last month in a long-forgotten box at my folks' home.

 

I remember fondly the day I bought 20 years ago with money I saved from recycling cans. I used this mainly to play emulated NES, SNES, Genesis and GameBoy games in my old AMD K6-2.

 

I realized that this controller is older than some of you 😌

Who wants a bowl of RAM?

Yep I used to have a better and safer storage method but when I moved last November I had a extra bowl lying around so I thought it was funny. Many DDR1,2,3 and some RDRAM.

2019-03-03 17.40.28.jpg

I used to have that much RAM, but then I went into building stuff out of it.

Now I got 2 swords, a shield, 2 crowns, a mace, a buch of keychain acessories and some christmas ornaments

At work I am known as the King of RAM

Got my Amiga 3000 open on the workbench.  SCSI drives are dead.  so I'm going to try and adapt some newer U320 15kRPM SCSI drives, hopefully they won't need that much cooling.

If they are M2 models, they are quite valuable and highly desired.

I got some old stuff lying around. Plenty of CPUs like XP1700, Duron 1Ghz, Celeron 540 and i3-2105. Got an old 256meg GPA (sic) video card and SB prodigy sound card.

2x4 Gskill Dual Flex DDR3 mems and 1x4 Ballistic Sport DDR4 mem.

 

Probably more if I look around. Do we have classified here? I'm in the USA.

I still can't believe how fast storage technology has improved. Have some old hard drives from 2002.

The Seagate U series on the right was also used in the original XBOX in 8GB capacity.

I've got a 9400GT passive, and PCI 6200 passive, and I think a PCI 5200 that's also passive. For simple display out duty passive cards are awesome!

Not to mention they also used a different variant of Seagate drive (which was 10GB and honestly better) as well as the disgusting WD Protege drives.
