I use an Augat PCS-068A socket. I have also replaced the socket on my Vampire with one. Once the edge of the socket is sanded down level with the top of the pins inside it, then it fits so well you can actually lift the whole Amiga by the card itself.

(I believe this socket was also used on the Furia I used to have).

Here's a quick clip of my vampire after the socket change. Note that there are no nuts on the screws to hold it down (I just couldn't be bothered to remove the motherboard to remove the screws totally)
