    Here's one of the few pictures that I'm happy with. Excuse the dust, the system is still caseless.

    Nice d.o.f in your picture^, i like the way the pathway in space runs from the foreground to the background/focal point.
    The dust adds "ambience" to the mood! lol. Keep them rolling please if you will!

    I get that after 2 weeks here.
    By the sea.

    This is a very very old card. Upon taking these pictures I discovered the chips were made in my own country!

    Card measures a huge 267mm (10.51 inches) in length...that's longer than my 6870's.

    To be completely honest with you, I have no idea what it is. I managed to acquire two really old machines about 4 years ago just because I like gathering old components. Surprisingly they all work, but everything is disassembled.

    Funny thing is I was only around 3 years old when this came out, so I have no idea about it.

    Hows the size of it, old tech is fascinating in its own way.

    Good post!!! I used to collect old radios off of hard rubbish and use the tube amp in them for guitar practice amplifier, id disconnect the radio and solder on a jack input and use my own speaker.

    I wonder if that sound card still works, that card may have cost a small fortune in its day!!

    Love seeing pictures.

    Last time I had it in its system it worked! Almost all the components of both systems function well...it was really surprising. I will get some shots of the other stuff, I reckon I have other big cards from the same system...probably network. But at 10.5 inches...hard to beat.

    Love how there's no focus on the VGA, it's usually where everyone focuses...it also took me some time to notice it's there!
