Default Opinion please...

Does anyone think it is worth my while trying to sell any of these old bits
on EBay...

PCI Hauppauge Win/TV card
PCI S3 Trio/Virge 2Mb (Maybe 4Mb) graphics card
ISA Sound Blaster 16 card
ISA Sound Blaster AWE 64 card
ISA Teletext card
486 Motherboard with DX2/50 chip and some (not sure - maybe 4 or 8 MB) RAM.
4x SCSI CD writer with SCSI controller card + cables
External 56k voice/fax speakerphone modem
Trust Spycam - webcam
1.7Gb Fujitsu HD
850MB WD HD
6.4GB Maxtor HD

Do you think they would sell, or would I be wasting my time - too old to be
of any use to anyone!

I'm still using most of those things, but I wouldn't pick any of
them up for over a buck or so. Some may be needed by some to keep
old machinery rolling, i.e. under 8G HDs that don't hang the bios.
A 486 with ISA cards is very handy for running embedded machinery,
such as programmers, etc.

Better to advertise your location and make them free to a good
home, assuming you want to declutter.

Most of the parts aren't worth shipping cost alone.
You could try selling the whole "box" full, not setting a
minimum price. Someone might pay $20 for the WinTV card
alone, but it's just a guess, find what similar offerings
are selling for.

I probably wouldn't bother with ebay, the fees are too high for piddly
stuff like this. Try to sell it as a lot locally. I would ask for $20 OBO
and take whatever you can get.

Waste of time for all of the above, except the TV Card (don't know about
that).

External 56k voice/fax speakerphone modem


People still need these. You might get something for it.

Trust Spycam - webcam


Depends on quality of image etc.

1.7Gb Fujitsu HD


Waste of time.

850MB WD HD


Waste of time.

6.4GB Maxtor HD


$5.00 for this.

The general concensus was that it would be a waste of money listing them on
Ebay, but they are having a free listing day, so I have listed these items
if anyone is interested!

I didn't bother with the hard disks as posting them would probably break
them - any advice here? There used to be a way to 'park heads' on a hard
disk, so it could be transported - can this still be done?

Head automatically park on drives that age, they might
survive if packed in a lot of foam, 2+ inches around all
sides and/or bubble wrap. New drives survive shipping so
older should be ok too unless they were half in the grave
already.
