What hardware to buy?

I'm trying to get my hands on an A1200, which I will do, maybe not today, but soon!

Now, I sold my A1200 in an Eyetech EZ Tower with PPC 603e 040, Cybervision 64/3D, HDD, CD-R & iomega Zip around 15 years ago, I then left the Amiga scene (if you do really leave), I recently came back when I heard about MorphOS but it wasn't what I really wanted. I'm wanting this next A1200 just for basic retro stuff, I don't need to go as hardcore as I did in the past.

So, without it breaking the bank, can you recommend any hardware (and where to buy these from) I would need to:
Run OS3.1 from an HDD (would you recommend the CF solution I've seen?)
Output to an LCD TV (it has HDMI, DVI, VGA & SCART inputs)
Some kind of cheap accelerator, doesn't have to be 040 speeds, would also need extra RAM on it.
I'd also need a joystick, I've seen a video of someone using a wireless playstation controller, is that even possible? - if not, do places still sell ones that plug in to the A1200?
Oh, and if possible I'd like to connect it to the LAN, just for a laugh

Anything else I've missed? maybe some new tech that's come out in the past 15 years?

Thank you in advance
