Oh cool, nice deal. I am also going to buy one of these https://www.atarimax.com/flashcart/documentation/ . I have an 800, 800xl, 1200xl and I believe a 400 back east in storage at my folks place. I might also have a Sinclair and at least 5 older Macintosh computers (PPC, 68000)... I need to research the connectors as I'm not entirely sure how I would hook these up to my HD to get the best picture. Did you Co-Ax the XE, or do you have some kind of converter box?

@ILLSeaBass: I have seen videos of the best games of Atari XE ... their graphics are like the Atari 7800 but ... which console will be better? Atari 7800 vs Atari XE ???? There are new games in box never open but they sell very very expensive !!!!!

@omargeddon:

I think the the 7800 games are a bit better quality, but it's a much smaller catalog than the Atari 8-Bit. I'm a bit bias when it comes to the Atari 8-Bit as It was my first computer, and would take it over the 7800 any day. I've seen some of the never opened games on Ebay, insane prices!

The Ultimate SD cart is a very nice multicart. You just copy the files onto an SD card. Very simple. I've got one and it works great. Here's one for sale.
