Thank all others for suggestions, the syscheck one is an interesting alternative (though still would prefer something with a case ) As mentioned previously, I did have a 130XE with a faulty graphics chip, I now regret selling it as should've just swapped the chip with one of my other ataris! I had 5 ataris back then (amongst a ton of other computers), now I'm down to two as over the last two years I have pretty much decimated my collection. Both my 65XE and 800XE have 8 chips RAM, and both have the space for extra chips and this indeed the way I'll do one of the Ataris (probably the 800XE). Problem is, original Atari MMU is near impossible to obtain nowadays and the GAL chip needs programmed which unforunately I no longer have the hardware to do that. Not sure if there's any place in UK or EU that ships pre-programmed GAL chips? I'm not shy to do a bit of soldering though looking at other options as well. Even if I order the syscheck for one atari I'll probably still have a go with soldering on the other. So the big question - is there anyplace I can get the GAL chip programmed up front? You may want to ping @flashjazzcatabout any repairs or upgrades. He's UK based and does quite exceptional work. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
