I'm sure our current design is fine, but I felt the need to mention that
in the latest http://www.rockby.com.au/ surplus catalogue there's "PCI
Compliant FPGA"'s for $9.50 each.

Device: XC4005E PC84
Package: PLCC-84
Xilinx with data sheet available
Stock #29761

Looks like it might be a 5000 gate array:

There's also a bunch of other stuff: 8K DIP-28 SRAMs for $2.50, 4M
512Kx8 Flash (PLCC-32) for $2.80, 100Base-FX tranceivers for $49...
