But if I was to think of all the Amiga hardware and upgrades I had spent over the last 20 years .... I am just too scared to think, but it was money well spent eh.

Eek I've spent quite a lot !

I started my Amiga experience only two years ago and since then I've spent some amount to get a full working A1200 system. This is a very closely to real price list, taken out from PayPal account

1) Amiga 1200, Rom Kickstart 3.0, Joystick, External CDROM, Mouse. It is also hardware modded : it includes an external ide port at the left side. = 128 Euros.
2) Amiga Video Port to VGA adapter = 15,00 Euros
3) External Scandoubler (To be able to use VGA multysinc monitor) = 21,60 Euros
4) Kickstart ROM 3.1 = 23,78 Euros.
5) 20 Gb, 2.5" Internal Hard Drive = 25,00 Euros
6) Microbotics XA1230 Accelerator, 32 Mb RAM, without FPU = 83,28 Euros
7) Netgear FA411 Pcmcia Network Card = 15,00 Euros (This card would fail a year later).
8) FPU for my Microbotics Accelerator = 12,00 Euros
9) Elbox Fast ATA Controller = 60,90 Euros
10) Ian Stedman's adapter to use ATX Power supply = 15,00 Euros
11) Fiberline FL-4680 Pcmcia Network Card = 19,00 Euros (to replace previous faulty Netgear Pcmcia Card)
12) 128 Mb SIMM for my XA1230 accelerator card = 23,00 Euros.
13) Iomega ZIP Drive Unit for File Interchange between PC and Amiga = 17,00 Euros
14) Apollo 1240 Defective Accelerator Card (Very thanks to Overdose) = 11,00 Euros

Total 469,56 Euros.

And probably this won't be the end, because I want to repair the 1240 accelerator and also want to buy an IndivisionAGA ...

shipping over the pond is expensive

A500+ PAL, Scandanavian/Dutch keyboard (and maybe .de too. weird enter key shape) model $110
A500+ NTSC, $60 (because it was from a couple states over)
A4000, $384 2 MB chip RAM, 16 MB fast, 540 MB IDE Hard Drive, AmTrade HD-357 floppy drive, Mobo rev. B, Kickstart 3.0 [2x ISA slot + 1x Extended Video Slot] and really cool "Highflyer" case!
A570 (CDTV for Amiga 500), $130 :-O
games: about $1000... so far. u can download stuff too but um...
those are the things worth mention anyway. I also have PAL A520 and NTSC. They are worth Amiga mention. As is the external floppy drive that actually still works and reads discs.

A1000 $5* uneven trade done with dishonest going out of business Amiga store back in 1994. they gave me it and very little money for my A500 with a 50 MB HDD. $70 + the A1000

Commodore 1960 monitor! $140

Having purchased a lot of my Amiga's and third party hardware back in the Amiga days it is a lot!

Some of the prices I can guess at and kind of remember are:

(?) = not completely sure on the price.

A600 - £199
A1200 - £299
CD32 - £299
Archos 330MB HDD - £299
1.3GB 3.5" internal HDD for A1200 - £?
4MB Ram expansion for A1200 - £179.99
1MB Ram expansion for A600 - £49.99 (?)
A4000 - £250 (second hand in 1996)
16MB ram for A4000 - £40 (ebay)
Philips Monitor - £199 (?)
Microvitic Multisync Monitor - £249 (?)
Power Computing external CD-Rom drive with Squirrel interface - £?
Power Computing High Density external floppy drive - £149
Rombo RT12 video capture unit - £99
SCSI Zip100 drive - £100 (?)

And that isn't everything I purchased, and doesn't include joysticks, mice, games and other software. However even estimating the blank prices above it comes to over £2500 for what is listed here. And to think I purchased most of this while still as School and college. Government grants were great!

And more recent purchases include:

Blizzard 1230 MK-IV 50MHz with FPU and 32 MB fast ram - £130
Buffered IDE interface - £11
A500 KS1.2 - Free
A500 KS1.3 x2 - Free
A500 Plus - Free
2MB PCMCIA ram expansion for A600 - £8
Replacement A600 motherboard - £10

Hey Guys,

In the past few years I have probably spent well over 5k on Amiga Parts. There is always that 1 rare part you want that was part of a system or a lot being sold on ebay. I have even bought out the remaining inventory of a dealer in my quest for the ultimate Amiga Parts. I ended up scoring a 2060 with 64megs of ram in a 2000 for a $99 buy it now on ebay...

I now have 7 2000s, 4 1200 desktops, 5 1200 towers, 2 3000s, 1 4000, 2 or 3 1000s and like 3 500s... With enough cool parts to put together a small museum. I also have 3 Commodore 128s, 5 64s that people keep giving me being the only Commodore guy everyone knows, a a ton of parts and add ons for all of them. All in all I am pretty happy with my collection, only missing a few key parts left. I could use a few scan doublers / flicker fixers, some 060s maybe. Possibly some usb cards and a Picasso 4 or 2 also... And I am still on the look out for a Mac Mini to run OS4.1 on, and maybe another 4000 to tower and deck out, mine has the soldered buster 9 on board...

everyone has their habits though, right?
