Gigging? Versatility? Can you extend the budget anymore? etc.

You will be here (gigging?) shortly?
Try hunting on your local craigslist. Sometimes you get lucky, but at that range maybe look into used Peavey 6505's, or Vypyrs (tubed). I personally dont like them much, however if you get lucky, you can find something like a Randall MTS somewhere down the line for that much. Ive seen them go for about 500.

Not sure if the 900 has enough for metal or not, I dont focus on Marshall too much..

Marshall has plenty of crank for metal. Kerry King uses a JCM 800. If you can get a Marshall JCM 800 or 900 for a decent price, go for it.

Only ones I can recommend from personal experience are Orange Tiny Terror + a decent 1x12 cab, or a Fender Hotrod Deluxe 112 combo. You'll need a distbox regardless, though.
