I would start with the cheaper and easily available add ons first if you plan to see what these machines are capable of. You'll add a lot of functionality for very little money. The exotic stuff costs a lot more and there is fierce competition for it. You'll end up losing a lot more auctions than you win and it can be frustrating to have an unexpanded machine that has only minimal functionality.
