The 2000 can take a ton of hardware additions. But over time, the more you add the more stress you put on the power supply to run everything. Eventually it can cause it to fail or make the machine actually crash.
My 2000's expansions currently include:
- two floppy drives
- Syquest drive
- original 40MB HDD (boot drive)
- scsi2sd 4GB drive
- 8MB RAM board
- GeForce 040 accelerator
- laser tank mouse
The Amiga 2000 PSU supplies the following:
To reduce any stress and allow for future expansions stress-free I've acquired what's known as the Bigfoot 2000 PSU, which supplies a beefy 300 watts of power! Not only that, but it has a switch on the back which allows it to work with either 110V or 220V - so US and Europe can use this beast.+5V @ 20.50A
+12V @ 8.00A
-5V @ 0.30A
-12V @ 0.30A
The manufacturer, Micro R&D, made PSU upgrades for the 500, 2000, 3000, 4000 and CD32.
The other big selling feature of this PSU is that it was designed to simply be a drop-in replacement with no hardware mods required to the A2000 or A2500 case.
To be quite honest, the build looks to be slightly higher quality than the C= original.
