Smile GVP Impact A500 HD8+ Series II Valuation please?

Not 100% sure if I want to sell it yet, but times are a wee bit hard at the mo, just a bit to pay out for, I'm just trying to gauge what this is worth which may have to be sold to raise a bit of funds.


GVP Impact A500 HD8+ Series II
with 8mb of ram (I upgraded this later)
I even have the box although I believe that has a rip in it, not done by me may I add, I can thank the previous owner for that, he was a guy at my work.
(can post pics later if you really want me too)
It has the correct original GVP power pack/lead which I think was also still pretty white still

I have the original 40mb or 80mb or 120mb hard rive can't remember which it has now.
I also have in it a 1 gig drive with I think... 3.X something on it, need to check it was basically used on a A500 plus which had 2mb (The 500 not the HD8+)
It has "stuff" on it which I would leave.
Although the A500 plus had gone a bit yellow, from memory this was still quite white!
Any ideas of value? If I'm not allowed to post this here I'm sorry and please delete.
Really enjoyed using it just maybe using another Amiga later so no need for this, if not worth very much I shall just keep it and have to find money elsewhere.
Thanks in advance.

Depending on the market season I would argue between £45 - £55 (+£5 pnp)

For the full wack a 2-4GB HDD prepped up with a GVP ROM 4.15 and a full 8MB of RAM, (2x4MB 30pin SIMMS) should net you about £60 + postage

But the market is a fickle thing and I do hope you get what it is worth to you atleast!

On a personal level this is a fanastic upgrade for the humble A500+ as you can lump in another 1MB of chip ram on the cheap (2MB CHIP) and 8MB FAST for a great WHDLoad machine.

since 90-95% of the Amiga Software is OCS/ECS with a 4GB HDD this is truely a fantastic upgrade for them. I have one from DougUK and its a great bit of kit and with £60+postage for the top end of kit I would feel I had a great investment in my gaming hardware.
