I am going to research parts and prices, if economical, I will be building one, looks very easy, I am just not sure about cost of parts.

I don't think this project is for anyone that does not wish to risk losing big money on the MOSFETs if something goes wrong, I have been doing some research and so far, I have been told the MOSFETs sell for about $165 each. I have a couple of exact price quotes on the way, but unless they are cheaper, this is one amp that I wont attempt. One tiny mistake can easily wipe the MOSFETs and over $300 from your wallet.
I suppose if you had a massive heatsink and put a fan or two on it, and made darn sure that your bias was set up correctly, and properly wound the transformers, it would turn out all right. I just figured that the MOSFETs would only cost $50 or so, I had no idea they would sell for so much.
