I manage to get by fine on an A1200 with 8MB fastram expansion and a 1.2gig HD.

For the vast majority of titles, this is fine. Anything that requires CPU power (like certain AGA demos) I run in WinUAE.

An accelerator is of course the preferred choice and I'd personally look for no higher than an 030 50Mhz. These accelerators offer a great balance between power and compatibility.

If you do a search you'll find issues can arise when you start using certain other higher model accelerators and I don't think it's worth the hassle.

By the way, for real A1200 workbench setups check out the Classic Workbench packs. One of them (the LITE version) is designed for 2MB A1200's with a built in multiboot ability to save on CHIPRAM and help WHDload games run.
