What should I get?

I'm interested in the many different sounds the Vypyr has to offer but how's the gain? I play metal and my current amp no longer works and so i'm looking for a new peavey amp because I'm very familiar with their work. I could get the bandit and bit by bit buy pedals but only if you guys recomend it over the vypyr. Again I'm looking for something with quality gain. I know they both have what I'm looking for but which is better in that aspect?

Basically what i'm asking is: Regular amp vs. Modeling amp?(thats not really a question but you get the point)

Let me know guys.

Thanks.
