I would pay for a better helmet. I think I paid around $150 for mine and it was worth it. It isn't even close to being wore out yet and its been like three years since I got it. The safety for your head is really worth it, last season one of the guys on my team got a small concussion, just in rec B!
I would say for the rest of your gear it really depends on how you play. I'm a aggressive forward and most of my gear doesn't get much of a workout; however, I need some good pants because I'm always flying into the boards butt first (cutting people off, non-contact level) and good knee pads because I block the shots from the point with my legs. Other then that, I could play naked and not get hurt.
Right now I don't have a good pair of pants, and my @$$ always hurts the day after I play.
