Used XH-A1's are a bargain right now, and you'll have some money left over for a quality wireless lav. Stick with Sennheiser or Sony wireless systems. Libec has some affordable video tripods. I haven't used them, so you might want to demo them at your local retailer.
With support gear, a good unit will outlast your camera, so it pays to buy the best you can afford. Buy once, cry once.
