Hi Jeri, >I'm curious how many people would be interested in an >entire motherboard replacement instead? Maybe with >the option to plug original chips into it? I'd tend to favour that the expansion be available in both forms for both budgets. Whilst some may justify the US$100 price tag for a video upgrade, I'd imagine a board replacement would be significantly more expensive. A full board replacement may be expensive enough to then attract customers wanting "warranty", which then adds to the cost. How many connections to the C64 board are you currently needing? I assume you have a pass through socket into one of the main chips (CPU?) and then leads to other points. It is the number (and shielding of) these other connections that may worry some people about constructing the device from a kit. I've seen the pics, and there seems to be some pin-bending on the VIC-II, but I assume this chip is removed once SDRAM is working.
