Gee, take a couple of days off with a busted monitor and look at the
I'm trying to obtain a 24-bit XL graphics card for my Indy (it's one of
the ex-FedEx boxes offered on the Sunhelp site many months ago). I know
that various places in the U.S. have them for around $100, but with the
drop in the Aussie dollar, it's far too expensive for me to buy one
overseas. My best bet is to offer some of my "long-time accumulated but
never actually used to it's full extent" hardware in a trade.
If anyone has (or can obtain) said graphics card, I have the following
Sun bits I can offer. I'm not saying that any of this would be a fair
exchange (I realise that the value of some of this stuff is well below
the value of said graphics card, and other stuff is way above), but I
can live in hope that it might interest someone enough to commence
Anyway, the list is:
501-2015 X1053A Fast SCSI/Ethernet SBus
501-1902 X1052A Differential SCSI/Ethernet SBus
501-1725 HSI/S (Note, this is card only, I don't have the cable or
501-2471 32Mb SIMM for Sparc 4 & 5 (I have a couple of these, they are
501-2739 SunSwift 100BaseT/Fast-Wide SCSI SBUS (I'm guessing at the
part number, because it's in my Sparc 10 which is at the bottom of a big
stack, but the connectors on the back match with what's in the FEH).
I can also offer to return-ship my existing 8-bit graphics card if you
really can't be without one.
If anyone is interested, please email me off-list. Once I've got said
graphics card, I might be able to be talked out of other items if
suitable Sun or SGI trinkets are offered in return :)
