A Tubescreamer-style OD is always useful. :shrug:

But if you don't know which of those you need, you definitely don't need any of them.

Buy used, you can get much better gear with your budget that way.

Look for an Epiphone Les Paul Standard.
And as far as the amplifier goes, look for a Peavey Vypyr 30.

I'd definitely take the guitar to a tech.

A setup shouldn't be too expensive. Some stores even do a setup for free if you buy a pack of strings and ask them to put them on.
