If you buy an A1200 accelerator to install in the ACA500, there is a hit to chipset bandwidth. Even with the faster processor and extra RAM, many games, demos and WHDLoad slaves are actually slower. It depends how hard the particular game/demo hits the chipset, some are affected more than others. I have seen this with both a 25MHz and a 40MHz ACA1232, although the effect is MUCH more noticable with the 25MHz model.
My goal with A500 is to run older games from floppies and from HDD if they support it. I plan to buy A1200 in the future for WHDLoad.
