Went ahead and got me a dedicated for future plans. It's a pretty nice machine, specially for only myself. I was about to install cPanel as that's what I've always worked with including managing linux but decided to get Nginx, MySQL, php-fpm and APC. Been working quiet a bit with optimizing this and playing with settings to see what's best. Apart from these what other technologies should be consider under a dedicated server at the moment, as well as plugins/modules which are experimental but hope to improve performance. I don't have any big sites on it at the moment but it's more than anything for practicing and learning purposes.
