That's true, the "vanilla" A1200, even when accepting fastmem as "vanilla", had a very short scene life, basically most of the good releases for this platform were made in 1994. In 1995 you really wanted a 68030 running at 40 MHz or faster to be able to enjoy the winning demos from the big parties.

I also have A1200 (need to but FastRAM card) so it is good to know which one works on this hardware!
I'm a firm believer in that demos should be watched and recorded on their target machine. There's nothing impressive in a demo being fast on a 50 MHz 030 if it was intended for a 14 MHz 020.

Make sure you get a good RAM board - the Hawk (and clones) is a real slouch. Microbotics MBX 1200z, Power Computing PC1204/PC1208 and the Blizzard 1200/4 all have better memory architecture.
