Looking for a Lat Pulldown Machine

I am looking to expand my equipment and also my workouts. I current have a standard bench with leg curl and preacher curl. I also have a smith machine (this one, http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://bodybuildingequipment.ericsgym.com/smithmachine/body_solid_powerline/images/psm144w.jpg&imgrefurl=http://bodybuildingequipment.ericsgym.com/smithmachine/body_solid_powerline/index.htm&usg=__gF1lMs9oK7mVeVXOpp5PR7itqAQ=&h=300&w=300&sz=12&hl=en&start=1&um=1&tbnid=FmNpraUfwpQZRM:&tbnh=116&tbnw=116&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dbody%2Bsolid%2Bsmith%2Bmachine%26hl%3Den%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26sa%3DN%26um%3D1 .

I have about 265lb in plates and EZ bar and a couple of dumbbells. In the future I want to buy an Olympic bench simply because of the freedom of hand position. I was looking for a lat pull down machine. I am willing to spend 400-500. Does anyone own machine they recommend or one they could suggest? Or does anyone have any other suggestion about other equipment. Thank in advance

wow the power rack looks unreal

that what i thought!!! I was thinking since in the future i want a better bench why not buy it all right now. And i would be saving money in the long run.

That power rack looks like all you’ll ever need, aside from dumbbells.
