Newbie question about gear

Hello all, first post on this forum. I'm joining a C level league this fall, and although I've played a ton of pick-up hockey on frozen ponds and such, I've never played in full gear. I have a price range of what I wanted to spend to get a full set of gear. Thing is, because everything is on clearance this time of year, I've found that I can get much better quality equipment for the same price as what I was planning on spending on the lower quality. I do not plan on playing C level for ever, maybe a couple of seasons, but I want to get the right stuff. Is the higher level equipment a waste of money at this point, or should I get it now, that way I do not have to upgrade any time in the future. I'm just worried that better pads might be harder to skate and move in, but I don't know. I also do not want to have to go out and buy all new pads wen I start playing in a higher level game. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
