Any idea what makes a TZX vs a ZX... just a different clock input to the raster pipes etc? I got a ZX a few years back from a guy that was selling a bunch of SS20's with ZX's IIRC... got the card for $40 which was pretty sweet. 

Still, have an eye out for a AG10E. Also I recently acquired a Ross Sparcplug, and a Hyperstation 30 motherboard and 2x 142Mhz wide dual CPU cards (though one may be a prototype and the other has a bent mbus connector repairable I think), also an sbus expansion that I'm not sure works with NetBSD. I'll definitely give it a test drive on Netbsd later this year I hope. Planning on 3d printing a case for it.
