Do I need 2MB ChipRAM for a600, on top of Vampire

I have pre-ordered one of majsta's Vampire V2's for my new a600. Is there any benefit in getting an extra 1mb chip ram for the trapdoor slot, or would the additional 64MB fast ram be enough for all purposes?

It's better to have more than 1mb of chip ram.

Definitely have them, a lot of things need extra Chip RAM and that need can't be fulfilled with the Vampire's 64MB of Fast RAM.

Certainly if you want to use a nice 640x512(i) 16 colour screen mode

Definitely is a big help for WHDload stuff, not everything can go into fast RAM.
