Hi,

I am going to do a tower with a amigaone xe g4 bought on here.

I have tons of questions, but first things first:

Can I add an extra pci usb card? If so wich chip?

Can I add sata pci card? If so wich chip?
And if I do does it boot?

Can I add scsi card? If so wich card/chip?
And if I do does it boot?

Shoud I use a IDE to CF or micro sd, does it perform better like on the old amiga's?

Maybe better, is here a pci support list for that type of system?:help:

Extra PCI USB card: and the support software from?

Elbox re-flashed cheap NEC USB cards and sold it as "Spider", but currently is not supported by any Amiga USB stack.

Get an USB external HUB (prefer a self-powered unit) and live with it.

Sata: again, no drivers. But Amigakit is selling some PATA2SATA adaptors.

SCSI: yes, grab the Mediator driver from Aminet and a cheap Adaptec controller. OpenPCI should make it work with your A1.
