Being a computer consultant, it's no suprise that over time, I accumulate lots of random computer parts.
The parts are in perfectly good condition, I just have no use for them. They are all for sale. If you are interested, email me and I'll come up with a fair price for the item.
Make sure you use the numbers to refer to items. If you are in the Greater Boston area, you can pick up parts. If not, we can work out shipping. North America only. If you are not in North America, forget it.
Apple AirPort Card 661-4594
Pulled from a 2008 MacBook Pro pre-unibody. Likely works in other Macs of that era as well.
Pair of Intel Xeon 5150 Processors 2.66 Ghz
A pair of dual-core Intel Xeon 5150 Processors. That's 4 total cores. These were pulled from my Mac Pro. However they are not 'special' in any way, just standard 5150's.
2.66GHz per core
4 MB L2 Cache per processor
Apple Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter
Connect a standard DVI cable to a Mac with a mini-DVI port. For connecting modern monitors, projectors and some TVs to your mac. Works with many intel iMacs, Mac minis, MacBooks and more.
Apple Mini-VGA to VGA Adapter
This adapter lets you connect a standard VGA monitor or projector or TV to a Mac that has a mini VGA port, which include iBooks, 12" PowerBook G4s, eMacs, iMac G4, iMac G5, some Xserve models.
Please make sure your Mac has a mini VGA port and not a mini DVI port or miniDisplayPort.
Wacom Wireless Mouse. Has left click, right click, and scroll wheel.
Please note: This mouse is NOT bluetooth or USB. It ONLY works on top of a Wacom graphics tablet. My Wacom tablet died years ago thanks to a leaky McDonalds cup. But I still have the mouse, its like new, since I never used it. I only used the tablet for the pen.
Low profile PCI ethernet card. Uses an ADMtek AN983B chipset. The box says it's Mac and PC compatible. There is no driver disk in the box, just the card.
This adapter converts between two different forms of DVI.
It is likely a DVI-D to DVI-A converter. I'm not certain, but I can tell you that both ends look the same, other than being opposite genders.
Use this to hook up a VGA display to a DVI port.
Blackmagic DeckLink SDI - PCI Express Card [Sold]
This card has been pulled from a lightly used Apple Xserve. Cosmetically, it looks brand new. I do not have any of the original packaging or paperwork, just the card itself.

ATi PowerMac G5 / Mac Pro Video Card Power Cables [Sold]
When a video card needs more power than the PCIe slot can provide, the card needs a source of external power. Mac Pros and G5's don't have standard sized power connectors, so you need these ATi cables that have a GPU standard connector on one end, and the smaller Mac connector on the other.
Some Video Cards need two power cables, some need one, some need none. My old nVidia GeForce 7300GT did not need external power. My ATi Radeon 5770 needed one cable. And the ATi 4870 card needs two power cables. Good times.
ATi Part Number: 6110024100G

Email me if you are interested.

Four Unused 1.4MB 3.5" Floppy Disks [Sold]
I am so not kidding. I found these on a shelf. They even come with labels! Never used. The box is a 10 pack but I only have 4. These are likely from 1998, thats the last time I remember using floppies regularly. By 1999, I was transfering files over the internet instead of using floppies.
