Yep. They're basically the exact same hardware, except that the 2000 has Zorro slots.

I see that there were some accelerator cards suggested that might be worthwhile for this system - how rare/expensive are these? are there any decent modern options for the 2000?
Accelerators for the 500/2000 go for pretty cheap since all the fanatics prefer an ECS or AGA system. For a real performance boost, you'll want something with on-board RAM, but even, say, a Supra Turbo 28 will make an improvement as long as you've got a few MB of fast RAM in the system.

So it seems that the display is likely to cause me the most issues. How long can I expect this 1084 to last if it is currently in working condition? What are the most common problems with them?
I can't speak to common problems, because every 1084 I've owned has worked like new! They're built well.
