that appears to be my closest

I am looking to have a stock of the IC's that fail most so I am not stalled when fixing a board. If anyone could provide a list that would be neato

I know the question is very how long is a peice of string but I think it would be frustrating to find a chip is bad and then have to wait 24 hours t go and get it

FROM RGVAC

CMOS chips in the 40s series, RAM chips for Williams and Atari boards (4116, 4164 and 2114), lots of ROM chips (2716, 2732, some 2764 and higher), lots of CPU chips from 6502 to Z80s and
don't forget sockets

I always like to have some 2K * 8 and 8k *8 SRAM on hand ;-)

6116 and.. can`t remember the other off the top of my head. Both in wide and skinny dip form. I have used a few in my time...
