Need turbocharger recommendation

My goal is 300+HP. I'll be running 8.5:1 compression in a 3.2L Carrera and .5-.6 Bar. I'd like to have the capacity to be able to have the turbo I select to potentially take me close to 400hp in a few years. It'll be predominantly a street driver, so a turbo which spools up quickly is preferred. From what I've read on the board, it sounds like the Garret GT30 would be an ideal solution for what I'm looking for. One like this:

These seem to be selling between $1000-1200 for a "like new" one. I'm ok shelling out that kind of $$, but if there is another turbo that would do what I need it to for less, I'd prefer to do so. Does anybody have a suggestion for one in the $600-ish range? Also, any recommendations on budget wastegates and BOV in the < $200 each range?
