the GFX-card came into the world about 2 years ago.... so did the nVidia 240 series..... which is stilll considered "more than adequate" for todays' games.

2 GB RAM is good..... however, as we all know, the Amiga A500 was able todo things with 1MB that required a PC of FAR higher requirements todo adequately. Pinball Dreams? ran on a bog standard 512kB A500..... and VERY playable. It took the PC a 486DX33 to reach the same playability level. without sound.

My only concern is whether or not the CPU is "good enough" by todays standards. However, the A1200 with 4MB FAST could do things that a 486DX2-50 was still struggling with.... even FPS-games of the Doom-style was possible. However, this was one area where the PC was considered "better" because of the chunky pixel gfx it "always" had, which had to be translated to planar format for the Amigas.

But still.... We could do far more with a underpowered Amiga in 1992, than anyone could with a PC.
