The cost per unit would be about £3 and a price of £15-20 would not be too offensive. You'd easily sell over 100 units. The demand for these items is high.
You sure about that? I havent noticed high demand for these chips, besides if you are serious about the Amiga you would get an A1200 and keep A500 for nostalgic purposes.

Blizzard PPC cards cost a fortune they run at stupidly high temperatures, especially in desktop cases. This would be something that almost any blizzard owner would buy.
Sounds expensive, and you need airflow around the card. The chips around the PPC CPU needs cooling too. Cheaper alternative is to attach large heatsink with fragtape to the stock PPC heatsink. If you run your PPC card in a desktop A1200 you are crazy. To protect your investment you need to mount it in a tower -where there usually is good cooling already!

The standard PSU is actually great. It doesnt consume watts when turned off, is not of typical chinese quality (exploding PSU's), runs very cool and has a decent amount of watt (some variants are 40 watt) plus it is actually styled after the Amiga.

I can understand why you need a new PSU if you are going to end up with a PPC or 040 in your A1200, but other than that -whats the point? The stock PSU is good enough.
