Wanted - AT case for a 286


Anybody have an AT case & power supply they could sell me? Or I suppose even better would be if you're willing to sell me a fast (>16mhz 0ws) 286 system?

I'm working on building a Gameboy emulator and I'm pulling out all of the tricks to try and get it run on as slow of a PC as I can. I suspect I can get a 20mhz 286 with a plain 'ole VGA to run at least a decent subset of the games well (~full screen at full speed). From there I plan to start clocking that system down to see just how low I can go. I've been pricing out components on ebay and can get most things I need (that I don't already have) for such a system cheaply, but holy cow are bog standard cases expensive there. I've thought of just modifying an ATX, but would rather not deal with that, especially since I've got a hunch that there might be members here with more than they want. ;-)

Anyway, if you've got something that'll work and you're able to part with, please let me now!

I used to have a couple extras that were from the 286 era, but I think I got rid of most of them at this point. I know for sure I have at least one newer AT case in storage, but it doesn't have side panels.

Thanks for digging that up. Given the project, I've decided it to be more thematic to build a 286 sleeper PC inside of a NES case. Now to source a broken NES... 😂 Fortunately, I expect that to be a simpler and cheaper proposition.
