I was lookin at the Marshall Vintage Modern amps and I noticed that they have KT-66 tubes, so now I'm wondering how are they different from the standard EL-34 tubes found on standard Marshalls?

Kt66s are awesome tubes, but you won't get much of a JTM45 sound out of the VM, if that's what you're looking for.

KT66: Warmer, milkshake-thick tone, looser low end.

EL34: Bright, aggressive, tight low end.

Wait, don't get a cab with v30s. If you want a plexi, you'll need g12h30s or greenbacks.

Now, what's your full budget?

Ceriatones are probably the best amps quality:price ratio currently available.

that is if you can deal with the wait time and the slight sketchiness of mailing several hundred dollars out to Malaysia. But seriously, Nik Azam (the guy who builds all the Ceriatones) does great work, and uses good components (and if you're picky about things like transformers, you can order your own from Heyboer, Mercury Magnetics, etc. and he can install that one for you), and is a standup guy who is great at answering emails and questions.

However, you never really said what you liked to play. Generally like Mike said KT66s are for the JTM-45 crowd. Great amps if you're into blues and blues rock styles (ala early Clapton, Peter Green, ZZ Top, AC/DC), not so much if you're into heavier styles, they kind of have their own distinct sound.
