adding a 68020 to my 500

     I have an amiga 500 with a gvp hd series II and i am thinking about
adding a 68020 in it. the 68020 that i am thinking about is the one in the back
of amiga world, for under 100 dollars. ( I can not think of the name off hand)

     does anyone know if the 68020 will work well with the gvp=hd?
     does anyone know how well the 68020 will work compared to the 68000?
     does anyone see any problems with me adding the 68020?

thanks, kurt

If its the M-Tec 68020 you're thinking about, don't, it is not compatible
with the GVP hard drive controllers.  I don't know the reason why,
something about memory contention,  I ordered one when they first came
out, installed the chip and nothing happened, a call to Memory World
and their tech-support confirmed that they were incompatible.

Power computing in the UK (+44 (0)1234-273 000) are now shipping a
68020MMU "no soldering" board for the A500 that takes an FPU and up to
8MB ram for UKP 99.95 inc VAT (UKP 85.06 export price = ~ $128) +
shipping.

Power are reputed to have very good tech support.

Hope this is useful
