Ive been kinda debating setting up a web store and stockpiling the nicer
pci, isa and agp cards that would be otherwise scrapped out at the shop. If
you are in need of a card, let me know and i can set you up with a deal,
tested worKing.

 just send me an email with what you need and i will let you know whats in
stock. Idea is to catch the good cards before they end up in the barrel.
Even still ive had about 50/50 luck with getting stuff to work once its out
