it depends upon the way you think about sound design - i personally very much include effects within the concept of sound design - i will often end up with quite a plugin chain after the synth to achieve a desired result. just switch off all the effects when going through each synths presets to hear what it truly sounds like. effects will always 'dress up' a sound but won't really change the fundamental sound of it (if we are talking just reverbs and delays).

lol! i have spent at least 3 years doing that! i have made a few tunes along the way though... no need to hurry - don't rush yourself. just spend plenty of time with the demo of each synth before you shell out any cash
