loader and hopper are the same thing
but for me, the best setup would be a used 68/4500: $100, used rotor or Z2: $100, used ego 8: $300

Used axe, 250-300ish, a z2 and a 68/4500, all of which is used. New?
Gog enmey-150
New loader-150ish on average
New tank- 150ish.
50 left over for a cheaper case of paint.

If you don't have a mask yet, make sure you go to the shop, try on all masks, and buy whichever one fits you the best. Don't even look at the price, jut buy it

Used Nerve- 100

Used Prophecy- 50

New Vforce Grill or JT Proflex- 90

Used 68/4500- 75

New Exalt Thrasher pants- 100

New Pod pack, pods, misc- 85

 

That puts you right at 500, and that gets you a full setup.

The i4 looks cool but it's not for everyone.  It doesn't cover your whole chin or any of your neck.

No mask is too expensive if its the right one for you. If possible go to a shop and try on some different high end masks.

Like everyone said don't cheap out on the mask buy it first you cant go play paintball if you don't have a mask and you wont want to play with a mask That's uncomfortable and fogs buy the mask first then you can upgrade your loader cause you cant shoot a gun at 12 bps with a shake and shoot loader and from there you can choose what to upgrade next either gun or tank.

 

Mask:100$ look at e-vent/e-flex, grills, profilers, & the proflex

Loader:100$ invert too for 75.95 or Pinocchio for 99

Gun:200$ azodin blitz for 169.95, gog envy for 199

Tank:go for a used tank i got a 52/45 with a ninja pro reg for 85$

 

Check your local shop for deals and prices though. Hope this helps

Its a great choice... if it fits you. It's a bit on the smaller side. Your best choice is just trying on masks too see what fits best. As long as you find it comfy and it has a thermal lens, your are set to go for a mask

Marker: Used Droid $250 or Used DM8 $250 or Used Shocker NXT $250

Tank: Used CF 68/4500 $90

Loader: New Valken V-max2 $80

Mask: New Vforce Profiler $80

 

That would get you a spool marker in your price range.  You could potentially switch out your loader for a used Pinokio or first-gen Prophecy, but I don't see why you would when the Vmax2 will work fine brand new.

 

EDIT: I missed your note about looking for a new gun.  Okay, you could drop the CF tank and get a cheap 48/3000 for about $40.  Then you could maybe get a new Rail Maxxed or Valken Proton for close to $300.  You might have to cut out the Profiler at $80 and go for an Empire Helix instead to keep yourself under the $500 budget, but I see that as a large drop off in both marker quality and mask quality while not to mention making your air supply much smaller.

Quick note if you wear glasses its a must to try on masks before buying them. Some wont feel comfortable with glasses. And imo profilers are the best with glasses if you wear them that is
