    Default WTD: Old PC with ISA slots.

    Hello, I am looking for an old (prefer mini tower) PC. The motherboard needs to have minimum 2 ISA slots so as I can fit my 2 x Winradio cards.

    If you have something, please message.

    Thanks

    ISA slots? Is that like a cassette tape?

    Mate, you would be surprised just how hard it is to get one. I think the ISA slot is like unobtainium.

    Those prices are killers

    I thought about the motherboard route.......then look for case...power supply.........

    Hopefully someone finds one covered in dust in their garage.

    i know this wont help but try the tip shops down your way if they have them because
    i dumped 3 units a few weeks back at the tip that would have suited you.

    Isn't it always the way? I not long moved house, and most all of this old stuff was thrown onto e-waste...then as soon as you do that, someone wants it....I've come to construe it as yet another corollary of Murphy's Law =)

    I've got one m'board left with single ISA slot, slim chance I'll may find some more, no cases however.

    Hi porkop..

    I may, I stress may, have something down in the garage that survived a recent rubbish cull because it may be in what was the "too hard" section.....

    I'll check later today...
    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.
