You do realize it is going to cost you over a grand for all those right?  ;)

I was under the impression that the A3000 had Z3 slots - I was looking at the A3640 - I don't wanna pay Amigakits prices to be honest, $459.04 for an accelerator?
I may aswell go AmigaOne or go for a Mediator PCI for that kind of cash.

I understand that the higher end Amiga gear isn't produced in the quantities that PC cards are but some of these vendors are simply taking the piss.

I think that's just business in a small market.  Ebay prices can get pretty high too.
Good good study, day day up!

Id rather pay 450 and be able to get it replaced if it arrives defective than pay 350 on ebay and get a negative feedback for complaining that i got sold something that doesnt work and possibly ending up with a fancy paperweight.

TBH I wouldn't pay $350 2nd hand - it'd be better spent on an A1 board (IMO)

Anyhow, if anyone wants any of this stuff, make me an offer - I'll part with the A3000 if the price is right.

Exactly... so much on eBay is sold "as is", and you have stuff all protection or guarantee from private sellers if it's DOA.

OK, so AmigaKit's Cyberstorm prices are high, but you're paying partly for the warranty and also the cost of keeping an Amiga dealer going - no mean feat in 2006!

The cyberstorm is almost the only eccelerator that will work in the 3000 there is a blizzard as well but these are very hard to find and that is the going price. Ebay can sometimes aven go higher. The A3640 is better then the 030 that you have now but is not a huge improvment and you get no memory expantion. Your looking at about $80-120 for that.

@Phonic

This is where I would trust quite a few of the people on here about the stuff for the big box Amiga items.  I would rather more then likely get an accelerator from a dealer, instead of just blindly get some stuff from some of the random eBay users out there.  Some of them just don't take care of there stuff, and other are just very steep.

There are some like karmanss that have very steep prices and WILL not budge on the prices.  Then you have others like "He That Must Not Be Named" (you all know who He is, and I'm not going to mention it) that like to throw hissy fits when you question the integrity of his products and credibility. When they say Caveat Emptor, they mean that.  Some of the eBay people can be some real shady folks, and they get even worse when it comes to computer stuff.  

It's a shame that a lot of the Amiga product sellers have gotten to be even nastier over the years. I'm all for the making the money thing, but don't sacrifice honesty and integrity for it. You really can have slighty higher prices, while still maintaining that down home goodwill and charm, with customer service. I know that Redrumloa has been good to me in the past. (By the way Redrumloa, those laptops are bit of a pain to replace the OS on at times.  But I just used something like the Sabrent 2.5 USB enclosure it worked like a charm)

Also good luck on the A1 hardware.  I mean seriously if you do manage to get it, will it work for a good while and then just quit on you.  I mean haven't some of you had your motherboards fail  :-? (if I read some of the stuff on the internet right).  Lets see OS4 isn't fully out yet, it's one big licensing nightmare.  I guess I would just like to be able to run my nice running classic software in the fastest, best running possible way. As for the money, I've seen people that have blew more then $800 dollars on more worthless things then computer hardware, so I really wouldn't complain.

When it all comes down to it, money will  be the deciding factor if we have any good developers and dealers at all. Some people like to code for fun, others for a little bit of profit. Some people love to do hardware for the challenge, others do it for a living because they just love doing it. There are those that like to swap stuff in trade show fashion, yet there are some that are the back bone of the hardware/software trade that put serious effort in customer service to ensure quality.  That's qualilty that at times warrants the higher price.

Just my 2ยข's.
