Thom Hogan's article on not buying your tripod system 2, 3, or 4 times over has always been good advice. Remember that it only hurts once when you buy a good tripod and head. Bad ones hurt every time you use them.

Oh man, Tony ... you beat me to it: I was going to refer to Tom's article, because it is so true and captures my own mistake to some extent.
Here is the link to Thom's article:

I also now use an RRS BH-55 head, mine is on the older Gitzo 1325 tripod. Works very well even with my 500 f/4 VR lens on it.
