Ah, I forgot about the ACE daughter card.

I used to have the a GUS that had >1MB of RAM.  It was the one which had
some SIMM slots, and I put memory from an old computer in there.

I remember the GUS used to be just about the only way to listen to music
files like tracker, mod, etc without taxing your CPU heavily, and it
even helped a little with other sound tasks.

When I got my GUS with loads of RAM, and my Adaptec 1540 SCSI
controller, I had *POWER* man.

Wow... that's sad isn't it?  :)
