- Doubt there are any fake Mean Well PSU's.

That might be the rated output of the power supply, surely the circuit wouldn't actually draw that.

Irrelevant as in 1994 most people still had a 500. A 486 CPU would have emulated this perfectly, as well as paved the way for cheap, powerful Amigas in the future.

I use a 68cm Sony Trinitron Wega CRT. A brilliant monitor for Amiga, C64 and all other retro machines.

Forget about LCD's and Commodore monitors. Expensive options that provide a poor result.
