I went ahead and bought a Gotek Floppy Emulator and a TTL cable to program it. Should be here around April-ish. Also bought a Amiga RGB to Scart cable (with audio) from AmiKit. I have a Scart to HDMI converter so it shouldn't be an issue.

I'm mostly going to use it for games but I do want to get Workbench 3.1 at least running on it.

I might go for this... Depends on if I don't mind not having a functional clock every time I boot the machine up.

I was actually thinking about going the Kipper2k route anyways after reading about that.
