Sigh... as with all things, it is worth as much or as little as you can
obtain it for. I have nearly all of the items you have listed in my
collection (except for the 8 inch drives) and it was all given to me.

So, would it be worth $100 to *me*? Probably not... If I was making an
offer, probably between $20-40 depending on condtion and what optional
cards were included. Its worth to you? Only you can decide.
