That's probably what I'll do. I have some other Atari items I'll probably start selling off before too long; a boxed Lynx II, a boxed Jaguar, an old Vader 2600, etc. Part of my anti-clutter efforts, but hopefully they'll bring in a little money that I might be able to use to offset the cost of the 1088XEL. Of course, once I get it done and working well, I won't need my 800XL either, so that'll probably bring in a little bit too.
I'm not sure about the Rapidus. The 1088XEL is overkill, but it's kind of a dream build. I don't know that I'd have any need for an accelerator, though it would be cool. I wonder how it would impact gameplay in some games. I'd be worried about timing and that some games may be too fast to play.
I actually just got my Sophia Rev.C DVI working but, rather than modify the case, I may put a UAV in it and use it with improved composite and save the Sophia for my 1088XEL build, then eventually sell the 800XL with the UAV installed.
