Alrighty! The parts all arrived. Everythings there, and it all looks good at first glance, right parts, G0 stepping (they didn't try the cheeky 'fob me off' technique i was worried about), no immediate concerns about the OEM stuff! No game(s) with the eVGA (not that I care), I just remember freeby bundles being the norm back in the day. But thats all the time I had (car parked in permit zone), so just a peek then back to work! oh well.
If I get the chance to have a start later, I'll post back, but it looks at the moment like those parts will be sitting happily in wrapping for at least until monday. How will I manage?
