I have almost collected everything I need and need to make a decision on how to proceed. I have found the 14, 24, and 40 pin TI sockets, but lack the 8 and 16 pin sockets. I do have good quality 8, 14, 16, 24, and 40 pin standard sockets, and wonder if I should just use them and put the TI sockets on eBay, or continue the hunt for the rest of the TI sockets. I've been trying to use as much as I can from my personal parts stash and have all the components, but the CPU I found is a 6502A and my PIA is a 6520. Will they work, or should I keep looking?
I welcome any opinions,
