Things like that usually retain some value ... it is relatively rare,
and there's still some fools using Octanes as their primary workstation
(ho hum). There's an Ebay auction for just the EVO card at the moment
indicating the value might be in the hundreds of dollars.

I could probably dig up an old set, but it is probably not worth the
hassle dealing with international shipping.

I keep mine in the next room attached with a long video lead.

Of course it could be noisier than it needs to be. A good cleanout can
sometimes help, and check that the fan hasn't been switched into fast
mode :-
