You got the point!
AGA games torturing the gfx chips like Banshee even demand all of my Athlon Thunderbird. And with that kind of games, I even have to switch frame-skip ratio to 1/2 ('Every second frame') in Display settings because sound is too choppy!

Thus, it does NOT make sense to use an AGA/68020 or AGA/68040 configuration if you want to play a game written for OCS.
You just risk sound chops because of turning WinUAE into a major CPU hog, playing an old game written for an A500 machine!
I don't think that's worth the trouble - UNLESS it's necessary (-> Banshee).
