Get a punching bag. Seriously though, you are blessed that Amiga people are interested in what you do. I'm lucky if I get any input on my projects and I'm usually ignored.

You have a good and reasonable idea. A fast bus with a gfx card would be many times faster than an FPGA 64 bit SIMD without floating point for 3D. The added cost would likely be less than double (and still affordable for a big box accelerator card). An FPGA with SerDes could be used for SATA also. I don't see any big dreaming here. Actually, it seems more reasonable than creating and using a CPU in an FPGA for a "personal computer".
