For £60 you should be able to get a Blizzard 1220/4, Apollo 1220 or even an M-Tec/Viper 1230 Accelerator which as well as adding 4/8mb ram will give your workbench a nice little boost, about 2-3x as fast as a standard A1200 with Ram Upgrade.

Workbench will be a lot more responsive and you could dabble in the odd emulator/3D game if you wanted to. Although they wont really benefit unless you spend out on a faster card like a Blizzard 1230 MkIV.

Somewhere in the middle you have the new ACA cards, these are brand new released in 2010 and you can find them at Amigakit.

You should be able to fine a 4/8mb upgrade would be about £40
