Upgrading my Amiga 500 from OCS to ECS - Episode 119

 This week on 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast I am upgrading my shiny new Amiga 500 to a full ECS machine with 1 MB of CHIP RAM and all the fancy-pants ECS video modes! Join me as I go over the procedures, including the modifications to your Amiga 500 to upgrade it, and review the nice ECS Chipset. It is more powerful than you might think!

How about that cool Ace2b from Individual Computers? Or ordering an 8372A Agnus Chip? Check out the goodness here!

Remember, to use the 1 MB Agnus, break the connections between pads 2 & 3 on J2, bridge pads 1 & 2 of J2, and cut the trace for JPA7. 

Are you a DIY Guy? Check out the Github for making your own 2MB Agnus adapter!
