ACA1230 models may not work reliably if the clock signals from the A500 aren't clean. I assume you have a Rev.5 board or older, or you have a weak power supply. Since the ACA500 can't do anything about this, the ACA1230 models aren't guaranteed to work.

It'll be much more expensive than the ACA500, but it'll come with 2M Chipram (including the Agnus) in addition to all the features you already have on the ACA500. It will be a 2-board solution with an adapter that goes into the A1000's Agnus socket, and a cable to the ACA1000, which is plugged to the side of the computer.

You get startup-problems, especially if the card is low-end. The slower the CPU clock of the ACA1220, the higher the probability for "no start" on an ACA500. Once it has successfully come up in the menu, it's 100% reliable.
