I would avoid adding an accelerator (however I would recommend a 68010).

The best thing about the 2000 is you can expand it quite a lot whilst keeping it almost fully A500 compatible.

If you're upgrading the motherboard, CPU, and RAM, then it can hardly be called the same PC, can it.

It may be in the same case, but it's a completely different computer.

Converting an analog picture to digital is not going to improve the picture quality, it's going to do the opposite, and probably cause your scrolling to be jerky as well.

The only problem being the Megadrive is a MUCH more powerful machine.

The way the MD can throw sprites around the screen makes the Amiga look absolutely worthless.

Regarding the PAL/NTSC thing... It's not the 80's anymore, everyone has 60hz capable TV's. Coding an arcade game to not run at 60hz would be nothing short of insane.

That's true, but you can put ceramic resistors on the 12V line to add load if necessary. I would personally avoid having to do this and source a power supply that was suitable.
