Hi im new here advice please!

Hi folks, i am an old Amiga user but have not had one for about ten years.
Tomorrow i am due to pick up an A1200 purchased from ebay!!!!

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/COMMODORE-...EOIBSA:GB:3160

I was wondering what people here would advise me to get to make the most of this machine?

Also thanks to psygnosis. Im thinking mainly games at the moment. Im a musician and been playing around making cracktros as videos recently on my pc with Oldskool Demo Maker. Might at some point try and track down my old Techno Sound Turbo II and RSI Demo Maker and go retro

Perhaps there may be a cheaper option in the Hardware forum ? I dont know, jen's gear is good, but there may be an equal but cheaper option ?

Hey everyone, thanks so much for your replies and help so far. Got a CF card and IDE adapter ordered. What else will i need to use that or is that all good to go? Also i used to won a Techno Sound Turbo II, i am totally asking blind here, what was the best Amiga home sampler. I currently have a pair of Akais sitting here and a decent PC but would love to start making some tunes with a tracker again straight out of the Amiga. Is Megalosound the best bet? And i used to use the tracker that came with my techno sound, is octamed still the most pro choice for sequencing?

And hi Chat Rob 1
