Got an unwanted Amiga PPC Card? Sell it! For a wad of dosh!

I know there are some of you out there with some unwanted Amiga hardware no longer in use.

If you have a PPC card they are currently fetching between 235 to 400 ukp in working order.

Make some cash, sell it today.

Are these things super rare or something, as prices just always go up and never down, even if there "untested" (eBay translation = broke) they fetch alot of money.

They was allready high enough to start with, even standard accelerators seem to be creeping up.

I wonder when these things were last produced in a commercial volume and how many were sold, I've also always how much they was when new, I'll be reading alot today then

Not 100% true. There are a lot of hardware collectors and resellers. They destroy the prices for expansion cards. Seen a lot 1230 turbo cards on eBay, which were auctioned for 200 €+, insane.

Thats my point, I have been trying to buy a 030 lately and the prices,

I put a ad. on Amibench and people sent me details of accelerators for crazy prices, I even had 1 guy try to offer me a plain fast ram card 8mb Hawk thing for 100

I am seriously considering buying a A2000 or A3000 because the add ons seem cheaper and more availible.

I was lucky enough to get a M-Tec 1230/40/8MB for 50 , some month ago. Originally i wanted a Blizzard card, but the prices raised insanely.
