B&W printing, inkjet, amateur on a budget

I have learned over the years I am color challenged (the sutleties elude me) so have shot mostly black and white. I have given my darkroom equipment to a local high school and have gone entirely digital with a film scanner for my old negatives and shoot entirely digital now. I use Photoshop 7.0 and will soon upgrade to CS. I have an Epson Stylus Photo 750 that has been a workhorse for years but am not pleased with its black and white output and wish to upgrade without huge cost (hopefully less than $800 for printer and first batch of inks). I rarely make prints over 8x10. Reading what I can on this forum and others (there is nothing since the end of January on this topic) I wonder if the new Epson R1800 or one of the new Canon printers would fit my amateur needs? MIS or other special inks? Anyone out there in the same boat?
