I used to have plenty of parts laying around. I sold them to friends though and used the $$ to build my bro a nice computer so he would stop using mine.:)

I've got a couple of cases, monitors, keyboards, etcetera sitting around. Basically everything I've acquired since my 300mhz system back in '98 I tend to get rid of my old stuff. (I long parted with my Atari2600, Compaq486, Commodore128/1571/Volks6470, and Commodore64/SFD1001/Hayes2400 system. *sigh*)

My stepdad got into computers briefly, and I got to go through his stuff after his death in '97. Imagine a room full of loose components, 8-tracks, and recording equipment. 486, 386, and 286 boards mostly, although I did find an old 8088 board it took me a while to identify. (There was also an old Pentium 25hmz board/processor combo, with a "turbo" add-on that brought it up to a blistering 50mhz!) Also found a Timex Sinclair 2000 (2meg RAM and 16meg memory expansion and a tape drive!) and a TI-99/4A.

The oldest thing I have sitting around is my old "APF TV Fun" Pong game from '77. It was the first commercially available home video game. Black and white only, paddles and sound built in the console, takes 6 D cell batteries, and has 4 variations of Pong! *w00t!*

425MB? That's huge!!....Compared to the ones my friend has. Take like 5 or 6 of today's hard drives and stack them together. That was the size of this, and I don't even remember how small it was....Some super lower number of MBs.

Anyway, I have:

2 Monitors
2 Hard Drives
2 Power Supplies
An old mobo
1 extra CD drive (sold the other)
Old sound & phone line cards
Tons of wires (boxes full)
Some A drives

And I think that's it...Seems like I had more. Hmm...weird.
