The ten classical engineering sample of Graphic card

I doubt many (if any) people here are going to have engineering samples lol. At best, Chris Angelini would but I can't say I've seen him post anywhere but on his article comments. Would be cool though to see more!

I think I have an engineer's sample GTX 460. It has no stickers on it and just says NVIDIA, and it's the only GTX 460 1GB I have ever seen that only has one 6 pin PCI-E power connector.

I have some really old Voodoo,tridents,MX440 type stuff laying around
I dont know why I dont throw them away
I actually had ISA soundcards until recently when I scrapped them LOL

Now my city has E-Waste collections where you have to call the sanitation
dept to come pick up hds,mobos etc

I used to give them to the scrappers driving around
but I dont trust them to rip out what they want and throw the rest in the park


It is nice to see somebody that has a cool collection like that

I cant get rid of my 2gb Quantum Fireball HD
It just makes me smile
