With the OSSC, most of these issues can be resolved, and if you pair it with a decent low-latency gaming LCD monitor, you can get close to the feel and performance of a real CRT.

I have the original OSSC, but I have also heard good things about the cheaper chinese versions.

If you want to use a CF card for storage, you need to go for a WHDLoad setup and that would require an accelerator with at least 4MB memory, preferably 8+MB. WHDLoad games cannot be run from HDD/CF on a plain 2MB A600 (ok, maybe a few 1-disk games but not many). You should be able to play most system-friendly games, i.e. games that can be started from WB like most adventure games.
The cheaper alternative is a Gotek solution. In this case, a KS switcher with 1.3 and 3.1 would also be handy as not all games run properly under 2.0+.
Okay, I think I'm sold on the idea of the OSSC then. Any recommendations for a decent clone?

I'm clearer on the Gotek vs CF card thing now, thank you for the explanation. I'll have to think about what I want to do with this A600 in terms of hardware. I guess one of the first things I need to do before any upgrades is take a look at the capacitors, as the warranty sticker is still in place.
