A 200 Mhz 030 with FPU would probably be a as fast as a real 060 for most games/demos/applications.

Of course as it would be FPGA based, it could even be updated with an 040/060 softcore if one was ever developed (currently there is only an 020/030 core).
Yes it would be even better to have a 030 as it's more compatible with games and apps as opposed to 060. Just add more Mhz's or a couple of Ghz's ;-)
