Trash or Treasure?! What’s in this BUCKET of PC PARTS donated to me?

My buddy Josh cleaned out his game room and donated a huge bucket of old PC peripherals to me: older video cards, sound card, hard drives and some surprises!

I believe outside of installing a modchip in your console, you can use Free McBoot. Essentially, it's a "hacked" memory card that allows you to run homebrew software, like OPL which will install and launch your games to/from the HDD. They're typically $20 unless you have a friend who can make one for you (need a modded console or a Free McBoot memcard).

More info about Free McBoot on reddit.

EDIT: Be aware that using homebrew software to run games from the HDD can be tricky. Some games need to have flags configured, otherwise the game doesn't work correctly. Also, some games don't work with OPL, so you need to use HDLoader. It's not perfect, but it can take stress from your PS2's optical drive, which will eventually die- guaranteed.

I used HD Loader with the PS2 for a long time. Worked pretty good as I recall.
I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me.
