AB3D is fantastic on an 030. The WHDLoad version of Stunt Car Racer with the turbo patch activated is also good fun. Other games are Breathless, Gloom, Hexen, Heretic and Legends of Valour. You can get F1GP to run faster if you use the editor from the Aminet.

You'll be able to play MP3s, albeit at low quality, with MPEGA from the Aminet. OctaMED Sound Studio will can take advantage of the faster CPU and extra memory in "mixing" mode, and play back longer samples and more tracks in 14-bits. Anything running from a hard disk will load faster, the computer will boot more quickly, Workbench won't be so sluggish, higher resolutions in DPaint become less frustrating to use, 3D applications will render faster, Wordworth 7 will run...

Oh, and don't forget the emulators. AmiMasterGear, AmiGameBoy and AmiMSX will all run at full-speed. DreAm (Dragon emu) will also run at 50fps, as will ZXAM (Speccy emu), CBSpeccy, Wzonka-Lad, A/NES (non-CGX version) and CoolNESs. PC-Task and PCx will be vaguely useful at emulating 4MHz PCs.
I didnt want an accelerator to play pc games like Doom/hexen/heretic etc ( have custom built retro pc for those). I dont really care about mp3's either.

Having faster high resolutions on amigaos would be nice. I do want to play the aga games without slowdowns like in the stock a1200. The HD in the unit now is a 3 or 4gb IBM and its much faster then the stock 80mb drive.
