I've recently got the MCA version (base MRV + MGE + 24-bit buffer, no Z-buffer) and it cost me a "Cubrun" (the Type 4 "Y" PS/2 complex). So, unless there's something special about the ISA version, it is grossly overpriced.

I wish they never stopped making PC graphics cards. Sigh ...

But what did Ed McCracken say in 1997?

"Some people think that you can add a graphics card to a PC and get the
power of a Silicon Graphics workstation," said Edward R. McCracken,
chairman and CEO of the Mountain View, California-based computer systems
manufacturer. "You can strap a rocket onto a basset hound, and you still
have a dog with a rocket on its back." And, going to an automitive
metaphor, he added, "You can put a roof rack on a Pinto and it's not a
Range Rover."

The rest is history. Or nVidia and AMD as you could say.

You didn't by chance get it from someone on vogons, did you? I was offering money for one there and the guy said he ended up trading it for a Type 4 complex. HMMMMM...... ;)

Yeah, I know it's crazy overpriced. My MCA set came with the documentation, cabling and software (TriOx, you still around for me to re-image those disks?) for about $200 back in 2009. Still, I've never seen the ISA version, let alone NiB.

I am missing the GE board for my ISA IrisVision. I made that guy a pretty decent offer several weeks ago, which he refused. Just sayin'.

Exactly, it was he. Now I have to get the damn 3W3 cable.

Here's the MCA IrisVision with a more realistic price. It's easier to find the boards via IBM Part numbers.

Looking at his other listings and his prices on keyboards specifically, I doubt you'd ever get him to budge more the $20 on an item.

It has been up for some time. That price is insane. Maybe he is reading from the SGI price sheet lol.

$2K for an old IBM PC keyboard? The guy either has no contact with reality or is trying to launder money.

If I were going to launder money through ebay, it would def be an ISA SGI video card without a doubt!

That's insane, especially since brand new keyboards with proper Cherry switches are still being made for around £130 or so. I bought one a couple of years back (Ducky Shine 3) and it's an awesome piece of kit.

Keyboard collectors came out of left field a few years ago and took everyone by surprise. This weird freak of a group where money means nothing and forget the computers, all they collect are the keyboards, occasionally buying entire systems just to junk it for the sought after keyboard.
It's one thing when someone acknowledges that you have a keyboard for a Symbolics machine but it's another when their only response is "wow, those have those rare Honeywell reed keyswitches!" I don't care about the switches. Were you dropped and abused as a child?!
Why? Because they feel right. They insist that keyboard X is superior to keyboard Y and Z, occasionally carrying around a keyboard with them or their laptop because they don't want to use what they already have. An entire market has sprouted up around them as well selling LED upgrade kits, multicolor keycaps, USB adapters or complete microcontroller replacements. IBM's keyboards, especially the grey plastic Industrial models and keycap kits, are considered the holy grail and fetch stupid amounts of money.
$2000 for a brand new keyboard? Yeah, to them that's reasonable. :shock:
These people have the funds of a furry, the sanity of an Amiga user, the rationale of an audiophile and the dedication of a catholic cardinal. Puts us SGI and big iron collectors to shame. My suggestion is you do not interact with these people, ever. Stamp them out as hard as you can.
