I need a old MAC, as cheep as possible.
Up to now I worked with a IIfx whose performance was
good enough for my applications.

What about the Performance of a MAC LCfor about 90,-DM ( 45 $)

Get a 6100 series. Great little machines. Pure workhorses and you get the benefits of PowerPC as it was the first computer to use PPC. I sold mine earlier this year for $150 with maxed ram but you could probably find one for $90 USD.

I agree with weed.  Although stuck on an LCII for a few years myself, stepping up to a 6100 (and bypassing the performa series) was one of the smartest moves I ever made.  You will be astonished by the Power PC speed which can be acquired for around $100 now.  Also, a 6100 can later be upgraded to a G3/G4 with a simple Nubus card installation which leaves future options wide open!  A G3 upgrade (depending on speed desired) can be had for around $350 while a G4 is going for closer to $500 now.  And those prices will come down very soon!
