Anyone want an A2000 with 030 gvp accelerator and scsi II for some crazy amount of money?

Seriously though, what would you gusy expect something liek that to go for? the A2000?

Afterall, I have two A3000


My guess..  Probably $100ish usd.  Lets face it, that machine can run 80% of the software that was ever written for the Amiga, so it's a great retro-gaming machine.  It sounds similiar to a machine I just purchased.  It was an A2000 with GVP 50Mhz 68030, Flicker Fixer, and GVP I/O extender card for $150.  Figure $50 for the flicker fixer, so your at $100.

I recently saw an A2000 on Ebay with a Buy It Now of either £35 or £45 (can't remember which.) I don't think that had an accelerator though, and I'm not sure if anyone bought it (I considered it, but I'd rather have AGA.)

The Amiga was very exspencive when it first came out. I spent almost $3000 on my first A3000T in '93 and then sold it for $2000 two years later and then bought the A4000D and a Video Toaster Flyer system including SCSI drives for video for $5000 and that was in 1995.
A so called High end PC or Mac in the late 90s would have cost you $3000-$4000 as well.
PPCs/Eccelorators for Amiga cant be gotten anywhere new so a person has to pay what the market is willing to no matter what. Look at some of the Antique road shows and see how much some of that collector stuf goes for  :-o
Amiga 2000HD Indivision ECS
Amiga 4000D towerised OS 3.1 and 3.9 on CF cards
Indivision AGA, Mediator 4000
Video Toaster 4000 Flyer v4.3 Millenium.
202gig of video drive space & 5gig audio.

If I remember correctly I paid slightly over $900 US for my Cyberstorm 68060 (and it doesn't even have the PPC chip on it.)

This auction makes me suspect though.


I'm not sure I would actually admit to that  :lol:

Unless... you purchased it brand new in the mid 90's when it was state of the art technology.  In 1997 I bought a P2-400Mhz cpu with an ASUS MB that had LVD SCSI for $1000.  So I'm not beyond forking out crazy money on computer hardware.  That was as fast as you could get though.  Everyone at work was amazed because I was pulling 70FPS on quake 2 with dual voodoo 2's  :-D


No I'm quite proud of it.  One of the first boards and its a screamer!  Still love the Amiga hardware over the emulation though.  I used to program a lot in Cando and WinUAE is not crazy about how it promotes screens.

To this day that 68060 coupled with a 15K SCSI drive runs circles around most of my hardware, and that includes Macs and PCs in the office with the Amiga.

Nice ending price.

Not as nice as this one, however. :-)

I was going to say that this BPPC auction suprisingly enough ended in the range of final bids that CSPPC cards usually go for, however it seems that this particular CSPPC auction has gone up in price accordingly.
