Rarity and Popularity independently are not necessarily indications of value. [More Information]



The video board has a separate power connector, most likely due to the voltages required by the 4116 DRAM. +5 and ground are supplied through the ribbon cables, so ostensibly, the aux power connector can be eliminated by replacing the 4116s with 4164s.

The obvious spots for -5 and +12 on the main edge connector go nowhere, but a separate +12 finger supplies power to the audio amp.
