Fast RAM Mass Storage Solutions for A2000

I'm about to purchase an Amiga 2000 with the bare 1MB of RAM installed and no SCSI controller. Is there any way I can purchase RAM and a CF interface for this machine in 201(7/8)?

Kipper2k is currently producing a card for the A2000 which adds 8MiB of FastRAM and IDE to the CPU slot of A2000.

It combines two cards. One which turns the A2000 CPU slot into a 68000 DIP socket and an A508 IDE NOTE: He's remade the A508 with a new form factor so the case will close.

Mehh, it no longer matters. I just discovered that said computer won't be coming with either a keyboard or mouse, even though the pictures posted on eBay clearly show that a keyboard and mouse are being used. There's no f#^*ing way that I'm going to spend $200 on an unusable computer. If I have to eat an eBay infraction, then so be it.

You can get Keyboard and Mice adapters to use PC ones dirt cheap or even make them your self if you can program a PIC Chip

It's a matter of principle for me. If a machine is advertised as being "fully functional", then that means that I should be able to start using said computer the moment that I get it home. I can accept not having an included monitor, because I have the display issue wrapped up. But not having any input devices, especially when said input devices are pictured next to the computer in use, is a total deal-breaker for me.
