It all depends what your gonna use it for. I use mine for tapping into a car's computer, wireless internet and networking. Some small applications that actually have to do with work. I have spent under a grand and very pleased. Too much power will cost you lots and it won't be worth anything in less the 6 months. Good Luck!
