So, i'm looking for a ram upgrade for my A4000/40D, will it be a ram, scsi or even a processor card, currently i have A2091, but the ram is only 2mb. I have been watching these at ebay, but had no time to watch them all the time, so those have ended before having any changes to bid :D

Re: WTB: A4000 RAM

I think the 1/2/4Mb expansions have a scarce usefulness on Zorro-3 Amigas, so I think you'll best served with a DKB3128 (although the sluggish access) or BIGRAM-Z3 (up to 32Mb).

Those ancient Zorro-2 based memory expansions are pretty slow. Like pushing a block of cement over cold molasses (a kind of Olympics sport, actually).

I have a 4Mb one on mine A2000 who serves me well until I can grab a decent accelerator (currently using a GVP A3001-IDE with only 4Mb inside the Zorro autoconfig space). I may part of it, but the gaypal fees will block the trading. :cry:

Good look with your search!

Re: WTB: A4000 RAM

So, there is only few options to get it at its best, Z3 boards or some cpu board with ram? And if getting any, then i should remove onboard ram, except the chip ram, is this correct?

So the best options for me would be the one of these:
Fastlane SCSI
DKB 3128
Or Cpu board 040/060 with ram

Sounds like i should keep watching these at the fleabay. What comes to postages, it doesn't always kill the deal.

Hi Hessu. No need to remove the Fast Ram on the Mobo. Not quite as fast as a Proc. card with Ram, but much faster access than even a Z3 Board! :wink:

Thank you, now this is clear to me, been wondering about this for a long time, and tried to find the answers around the web sites.
