Behind me is 1 of my TI99/4A with FinalGROM using RXB 2023 that has much of the XB

written in Assembly so console only XB is way faster then any other XB in Console alone.

The PC case has a PC 350watt Power supply with the Shift838 PEB board is loaded with

1Meg SAMS, upgraded CorComp Disk Controller, TIPI card with a P4+ Rasberry PI and

128Gig SanDisk, only 1 Floppy Drive as I have it on the Network with the TIPI card.
