Will not drag this too deep down off topic by discussing a potential future standalone version of Vampire which may or may not come within 3 years. :-)
But if you must know, I want to keep my current A1200 +060 unchanged. Meanwhile Im waiting for my new A1200 €200 special edition case + V1200, so basically, Im one mobo short. And since the case (+keys) and the Vamp are brand new it seems fitting to use a brand new mobo and not some 23+ years old thing I get off ebay.
