Well goodness, you definitely sound like a beginner, a rich one at that. The strongest close-up stuff won't cost you near $800. Shot you can pay me half that and I'll give you private lessons. If you spent $800 at one time you wouldn't be able to perform at least 80% of what you bought for like forever, because being a good magician isn't about the thousands of gimmicks/tricks you have but the quality of the magic (the way you present it and interact with the people watching). As far as what you should get ummm...:
-two decks of bicycle cards (red preferably)
-invisible deck is great
-Born to Perform is probably one of the better beginner videos out
-google "Sankey-tized" great value: has paper clipped, air tight, some coin stuff,... its just an awesome value
THOSE SHOULD BE SOME GOOD STARTERS TO YOUR SHOPPING LIST!!
OH YEA, SEND ME SOME FOR THE GREAT ADVISE
