    I think your best bet is ebay or amazon. There are still people around who sell old hardware.

    Historically, I had 2 IceQ cards. Both died shortly after warranty. And there is big problem with late AGP cards.
    They were all natively PCIe based and used PCIe-to-AGP bridge chip. On my card which had this bridge, it was getting super hot.

    I expected it to die, and because of its small size and position, there was no way to attach any heatsinks. Chances, such card surviving till becoming so obsolete that it would end up in shoe box is slim.

    Ah , yes that card was on my wish list for some time. I liked the IceQ cooler and the looks. Sadly, even on eBay is a rarity. Craug list or those kind of sites could be another avenue to pursue?

    I have a Sapphire 3850 knocking about but with a Zalman VF-1000 cooler (the stock cooler was so bad and loud so I got this aftermarket cooler, dropped the temps and noise levels dramatically) on it however I'm not sure if it'll be alive anymore as the PC it was in was experiencing crashes with high load (though this could have been the PSU used).

    It's right what people are saying though, the railto chip on the back of the card (the pcie-agp bridge chip). It's worth attaching a heatsink if you can, even if just using 2p coin with thermal adhesive.

    Here's a pic (sorry the quality isn't great, It's an old photo on my pc, I don't really fancy routing round in storage getting the old pc out to take a new photo at the mmoment etc)
