We can't really help much in this case. Make a new post when you are ready to buy each part or group of parts.

So much will change in a year. Things new now will be old, and new things will come out.

My sugestion would be to hold off buying anything and save up the money.
So many things can happen in a year and it would be bad to have cash tied up in old stuff.
Also warranties start when you buy not start to use.
