If you are in the US I would suggest getting the Flashpoint re-brand sold by Adorama since you can get better warranty service. I have the following that has worked well for me on my A7III:

I second on the Adorama "Flashpoint". Same flashes, same price, but full warranty in US and sometimes you get some fancy extras like carrying bags

But, answering your original question, I personally think it is better to start small to see if you enjoy the system and then you go big when you want.

Start with the $84 low power flash:

TT350S:

This small guy is very handy to start and to travel light, and it can double up as a trigger (so, you don't need to buy the remote trigger at first).

Then, if you want a powerful flash but don't need the Lithium battery convenience and fast charge, go with the TT685S that is cheaper:

And, if you want a small strobe, far more powerful, go with the amazing eVOLV 200:

The best thing about the Godox system is that you can slowly build up on it. When you buy an "upgrade", you can still use the smaller units as fill lights or second / third lights, so, you never "loose" money on the investment
