i bought Bauer Impact 500's when i started cuz i didn't want to spend that much either. they lasted me 1.5 seasons of roller and 0.5 seasons of ice. the palms have worn through now, so all in all, not too bad for durability. i'm looking for better gloves this time around.
you prob should spend that much on your 1st set of gear, because you will probably make some mistakes buying the first time around in terms of fit and features etc and it'll take a bit of trial and error to figure out what gear is right for you (that is unless you get v.good advice from your hockey store).
