I want to recreate original xbox alpha development kit. Here is my build log:

Motherboard - got CC820 (very similar to original VC820, but uses SDRAM) from recycling center
RAM - Got 128MB SDRAM from recycling center
CPU - Got 800MHz Pentium III from recycling center
Software - got some recoveries and alpha SDK.

Still have to get:
GPU - Geforce 3. Already found seller, but he does not respond.
USB Card - also found seller, but he does not respond
Network card - I will buy it on ebay. Found seller locally, but he wants to transfer money using expensive and outdated method.
Sound Card - idk where to get it. It's something rare.
COM Null modem cable - to debug it
Some prototypes to run!
Seller for graphics card does not respond and i don't want to buy other parts until i'll have gpu.
