For that much money I would definitely go for a tube amp! A little bit more money and you can get some REALLY good amps! A combo would be best because a head+cab would be more expensive...

ENGL, made in Germany, great tone and versatile!

ENGL, little brother of the screamer, also a good amp

Marshall, Tone Monster and extremely versatile!
