now about your question(s). there is not much different between the Etek3 and 4, i believe it is a new bolt and zick kit, and some new milling, other than that it is the same gun. if you are going to buy an Etek, i would recommend a used Etek3 and get a Hush/Kush bolt for it(goes for about $50) i think it might still be worth it if u but a new Etek3 too.
So this is what u have to think about. An Etek3 LT goes for about $450 and an Etek4 LT goes for $500, its a $50 difference and it might just be worth paying that since if you were to upgrade the Etek3 u would probably spend about $100 to make it similar to the Etek4.
OK not onto the other stuff u need.
LOADER = Pinokio is fine
MASK = Try on masks at local store to find one that fit you the best and is very comfortable.
PODPACK = NXE has cheap good quality packs, the line is called TP-Pro and they are around $30
CLOTHING = Planet Eclipse is great but their playing gear is on the expensive side. Empire makes some cheaper stuff like the Contact Zero pant and their the invert line too. i always recommend checking out ur local stores for sales and closeouts since since pants haven't changed that much since around 2006ish(PB fashion makes some pretty basic pants with i believe are on closeout everywhere right now). jersey is not that big of a deal as u can buy any cheap jersey or just where a long sleeve shirt.
PADDING = A MUST IS KNEE PADS, I've heard tha the Dye pads are amazing(2008 to current), empire and PE are tied for second, sly also makes some good pads too. i also believe that the 2008/2009 empire pads are on closeout too.
Hopefully that helps you out. And as long as you like what you purchased and it works for you, then its a good purchase.
