When I get a line on the paints would you like that info as well?

Not directly

For the Cube to go color you need a ND board (way big $$$) which adds a 
color head.  I'd only do this once you decide you love your cube and 
then I'd hunt for a complete system to replace it in much better 
cosmetic shape.

For the Cube to go turbo you need a turbo mainboard

For the mono slabs you need a completely different machine (board)

Basically the machine is what it says it is on the label.
