New Amp

I need a new amp thats worth keeping. I was just starting to build a rack, but before I get deep into that I'll probably want a combo. I have a LONG way to go on the rack. Some amps I've been looking at are the Budda Superdrive, Soldanos, a Legacy, and a Mesa Nomad. I might have left out some companies but I'm open to other suggestions. I also realize some amps might need a boost to get the sound I'm looking for. I have an RG3120. I'd like a good agressive tone, a smooth Satriani-esque tone, and a full, fat clean sound. It will take a while to save enough money to purchase any of these amps but I don't want to mess with any "temporary" amps. What would you guys suggest.

I'd give the Peavey Prowler a try, if you can still find one. It's 45 watt tube, 1 12 inch speaker with output, and a boost switch for gain and volume. I've been realy happy with mine.
