hello all!

First off id like to say that i am completely sticking to my first plan. 1) do NOT buy a classic amiga, 2) learn to enjoy winuae and 3)stop dreaming its 1992 and the Amiga rocks!

Soooo i have bought an A4000 & last month an A1200!!!

and to the question...

id like to glean some information from you clever boys and girls out there ...

An A4000 030 is coming my way (yay!) and i'd like advice on some upgrades......

it will be running OS 3.1 / 3.9

a) 3d graphic card ... which one gives the best perfromance? problems ? can iconnect to an nec multisync 17 inch but an lcd tv would be better?.

b) pci or stick with zorro slots for upgrades?

c) additional ram ? how much is a good amount? and which type to go for? i.e on accel card or other

my goal is to stick with the 030 for the time being but a PPC would be an addition when funds allow...i expect it will get an 060 first tho as there cheaper lol

and yes , the battery will be removed asap and the mobo cleaned properly as time allows

thank you...:D

- good amount of memory depend of your use! 2+18MB= perfect! ZorRam 128 or 256MB = magnific!
