Nice find indeed! I just recently acquired 2 older E-machine minitowers that were being thrown out at work. Not much worth salvaging except the cases, floppy drives and CDrom drives. I also am always on the lookout for hidden treasure. :)

EDIT: I just identified the motherboards in both boxes as Delhi-3 socket 7 boards with the Via MVP3 chipset. I may have to try these out. :)
