My gradute proyect is similar to yours. We designed a PCI board with an
ACEX1K100, and SDRAM, a PCI core (Target PCI, Wishbon Master) and a linux

We are finishing it this month :)

I recommend to implement it. It makes easier to use your design, and you
can use connecto other applicationd from OpenCores.

It depends if you are going to design a PCI master or a PCI target ( or
