Well, my book auction didn't stir much interest here.

Maybe this auction will...

I have one. It runs anything I can throw at it except for TFX, never could make that run, even 060.

Hey Curtis,

 I noticed your auction says you found you don't really need this in your A2000 anymore. Just curious if you've gone back to using it with the just the 68k or if you've got another accelerator or system for that matter, that gets more use?

Currently don't have an 030 equipped Amiga myself and have been getting along just fine without one. For what I use an Amiga for anymore that is. Have a 28mhz Supra Turbo in my A2000 and an ACA500 alongside my Phoenix equipped A1000.

If your card stays low enough, *might* try to shoot for it as I've got another A2000 just laying around.  :)

Going back to using the system without an accelerator.

Just never found anything I normally use that it helps that much.

For what it's worth, I just found an ARM controller for a Minimig.

Sold the Minimig a while back and never got around to installing this, so it's NOS and up for auction!

New link to show all the items I've got up right now.

Strange you say that. I found everything more snappy when using the SCSI controller on the combo.

I suppose you would not notice too much if not using that.

I guess it all depends on what you are doing with the machine. My A2000 has a GVP '030 (40MHz), and I couldn't imagine going back to 68000. I also depend on the SCSI part of the GVP, for both the hard drives and CD-ROM drive (This is a CD Writer Plus from HP).
I can't imagine this system working as well without the '030.
A2000 GVP 40MHz \'030, 21Mb RAM SD/FF, 2 floppies, internal CD-ROM drive, micromys v3 w/laser mouse
A1000 Microbotics Starboard II w/2Mb 1080, & external floppy (AIRdrive)
C-128 w/1571, 1750, & Final Cartridge III+
