A gfx card is a good reason to stay with 3.9. He should have the ram with the DKB2632 too. I wouldn't go back.


What 3.9 offers to gfx cards?

It originally had an A2088 Bridgeboard that I rarely used.  I then added an 8-Up memory board with 8 meg.  Last year I added an A2630 with 4 meg., a CD drive, a 2 gig. hard drive, a Deneb USB board, an Xsurf 3cc Ethernet board, and I upgraded everything to OS 3.9.  So far so good.

Is the A2088 still present in your Amiga ?
It takes 2MB of ZII 16bit memory space (and drain 1,5 A).
Remove it physically, please :)

Yes, candy, nicer looking icons and improved datatypes for RTG. It can all be added to 3.1 but 3.9 has other improvements and doesn't require mixing and matching later libraries or as many fixes/hacks (beyond CGFX or P96).

There isn't much candy in 3.9. Ok, 3.1 lacks even more candy but it is not that difficult to download same wallpapers and icons from Aminet.

Enhanced datatypes are automatically installed with RTG software.

"The DKB2632 should solve the memory problems. Remove the 8-up and your good to go"

Ding!  You got it!  I feel kind of silly now because I was holding off  on adding the 2632 until I figured out the 8-Up vs. 2088 issue, but the  solution all along was to simply pull the 8-Up and add the 2632.  Doh!  I  now have a mountain of fast ram and the Bridgeboard still works.  Check  it out:

(I tried to post a screen shot here but I guess I don't know how to do that - it came out as text and I had to remove it - anyway, the number is 123730944)

I know it seems a bit silly to get so excited over 112 meg of ram when  my PC has 4 gig, but somehow seeing a 9 digit number of the Amiga is  very cool.  Thanks to everyone who helped me out with this one.

N'avait pas besoin.  I know the 2088 seems like a dog, but it's actually useful, if for nothing other than its ability to read my collection of 5.25" floppies.

Also the 2000 acually runs faster with 020 as its sligtly faster than 1200 one and
Aga slows the sytem slighty no biggy though
I just put another ram card in the 2000 there cheap to buy of ebay
You can steal ram chips of scsi cards also or 500s l belive if you got free slots on your 2091 or ram card

ps i prefer fish n chips not ram and chips
