I'm gonna start looking for an affordable (<$600) home gym for some exercise as well.
Check out Power Block:
I have a set of the 'classic' 5-50 (it was a gift from Mrs. JKP1187,) from a local exercise equipment specialty store, G&G Fitness. That plus a bench from a local sporting goods store and the total cost was probably around $400.00. It's great if you have a small apartment (as I did at the time,) I set it up in my bedroom, and it'll take up very little space. If you're interested in this sort of space-saving kit, make sure that it is expandable, so you can add weights to it later as your budget allows.
