My favorites were always the A1000 and A3000 cases. I hated my A500 with the hard drive dangling off the side. I dumped it as soon as I could afford an A2000. The A2000 wasn't much to look at, but...

Very interesting stuff. I remember playing Quake 2 on my PC back in the day. Pentium 2 400mhz, 64mb RAM, dual Voodoo2 cards SLI running open GL. I think I was able to get 60fps in 1024x768 :)

How do you have the Amiga connected to a TV? Remember, nothing in the US comes with a SCART connector. We are usually stuck with the good ole A520 to connect the Amiga to a TV via composite video.
