How fast in computer terms can you get a 1200? 386? Pentium class? Multi core?
I'd say the 1200 would be on par with a 486DX perhaps?

Accelerated Amiga's are essential for running OS 3.9 too and certain Doom clones (4.x requires PPC acceleration).

I personally don't bother with it as it's;

a) expensive (depending on what you want in terms of speed - 68030 will suit majority of users... anything beyond that is pie in the sky in terms of cost)
b) I like to fry my eggs in a pan rather than on a CPU
c) only play the odd game or two
