If Amigakit doesn't stock them, you can always ask 1985BMWK75 on here. They were recently selling the same thing for various Miggy's through this thread

Hope this helps and good luck!

Amiga 2000 needs like the Amiga 3000 the Tick Signal which is not present on ATX power supplies.

@DJBase

But changing a jumper is enough to avoid requiring it. I know people with ATX PSUs inside their A2000 and also inside their A3000.

This seems like a good place to ask my question.

I have an A4000T which has quite a bit of stuff in it:

Cyberstorm PPC 060/233 and 128mb RAM
PIV with Concierto and Paloma
16mb mobo RAM
CD and floppy
2 x DKB3128 (96mb on one and 128mb on the other)
Kickflash + Subway USB
Compact Flash/IDE adapter with a 512mb CF card
1 9gb wide SCSI HD
1 1gb SCSI (Seagate)
1 4.3 GB SCSI (Quantum Fireball)

And another DKB3128 on the way, also fully populated.

Currently this is on the original Amiga PSU, but I have also got a spare NOS equivalent PSU

I have an ATX to AT adapter cable, a generic one bought at the computer shop.

Will this be okay to use, and what ATX PSU should I get in terms of output?

Those ATX AT cables are ok, I use one in my A4000T too. Your PSU should have enough Ampere on +5V and +12V. Modern PSUs have here usually more than 20A so thats more than enough.

I can get a 350W PSU for £7.
The rest are higher, 350W should do, yes?

Confirmed: 350W ATX (bought today at the computer fair for £7) with the AT to ATX converter works fine. On A4000T it is plug and play.

The funny thing is, I was searching through my boxes for a toolkit and at the bottom of one of them I found a 350W ATX power supply. That was the one from my first PC case.
I forgot I had it, what a dufus, eh?  :roll:
