The A1200 you linked is fine but you will need a trapdoor ram upgrade, 4mb is sufficient for most Games, 8mb is better (helps to pre-load larger games) and an accelerator with 16mb+ is optimal.
You can fine them used on eBay and Amibay and Amigakit/Vesalia stock the new ACA range of cards:
As a guide, Fast Ram cards will cost between £40-£60, the ACA Cards you can find the prices on Amigakit/Vesalia's sites.
Budget accelerators tend to fetch £70+ and the Blizzards £130-£150, you'll find some eBay sellers chancing theirs at £200+ but they wont sell.
I'm afraid I wouldn't dare install them. I don't know much about moddin g myself and I'm not particularly handy. I will look for a better amiga 1200 when they pop up and let you know. I saw videos of inserting the flash ram into amiga 1200 and that seemed easy enough, correct?
when I buy an amiga 1200 somewhere do I get the workbenches as well? or do I need to buy them seperately and where?
