I don't know how much you want to spend, but I would recommend a nice second hand set up for around the 1500 pond mark you will get a nice setup with well know branded names!

I bought my present sib back in 2007 and it was only a year old recon its worth more today than I paid for it!

As above - go second hand big brand for both SIB and engine - you will then sell it for the same as purchase if you buy at the right price/time (ie now, winter), ends up costing you nothing when you re-sell.
