Default Post your most pointless PCI combo card

What is the most pointless PCI card you own that combines two or more peripherals? I have a combo dial-up modem/firewire PCI card. That'* just useless. Post yours! Combo SCSI cards don't count.

You don't have any cards just sitting by? This one is not in any PC, and I don't think it has been for a long, long time.

Yeah, that is pointless. Is it a combo with some sort of token ring chip?

2 external SATA ports are rare, as far as I know. But am I the only person with a combo modem and something else card? At least someone else has to do some dialup while transferring data over a cable, right? Why not just do it in one fell swoop with a single card?

I had a modem/sound card. I used it to play hacky sack, so I can't find it right now to tell you what it was.

Mmm yeah I think I have one of those too somewhere. I think I actually attempted to use it once, but XP didnt have drivers for it, and I was too lazy to go find some.
