So take your time! :) You could start off by getting a ride, one crash and some hi-hats, play them for a while and get used to the sound and eventually ask yourself, "Hm, what should I get to complement this setup? Since you're gonna play metal, I suggest getting some big cymbals, at least 18" crashes, and a 19-20" chinese. A crashable ride won't hurt either. :)
Man.. spending 2k on cymbals, I wish I was in your shoes right now haha.
