Alright, after deciding on purchasing a Jackson RR3 as my guitar (don't you try to talk me out of it!), I now need to decide on an amplifier. My budget is up to about $550-$800, but I have a little bit of leeway. I play mostly Thrash, speed, and Power Metal, and don't expect to be playing any large gigs soon . So far, I have Three finds:

1)Randall RG50tc: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Randall-RG50TC-50W-1x12-Guitar-Combo-Amp?sku=481197

2) Line 6 Spider Valve 112: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Line-6-Spider-Valve-112-40W-Guitar-Combo-Amp-104616750-i1323853.gc

3) Line 6 Spider Valve 212 (What the hell is the Difference between this and the 112 anyways?) http://www.guitarcenter.com/Line-6-Spider-Valve-212-40W-Guitar-Combo-Amp-104616735-i1323854.gc

Please share any other reccomendations, and please, keep it limited to tubes and hybrids.
The randall out of those 3. Also check out a used 5150, a b-52 at112, and bugera. All metal amps in your range.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
Cool B-52. Sure it will handle metal well (even better than the Randall and Line 6s)?

And the only Bugera I found was a 212 @ 120watts. It's a bit overkill.
