I'd stay away from the big bundles on Amazon and Ebay. Most of the "extras" that they come with (outside of the body and OEM kit lens) are complete crap. I'm a Canon guy, but Nikon is great too. It's like Chevy vs. Ford vs. Dodge.

I wouldn't be too afraid to buy used as well if you want to stretch your budget. I literally have an entire kit of used gear, and it all looks and functions like a new product. Like others have noted, the lenses are where things will begin to get expensive with a DSLR. If you want something with decent range, I'd recommend a Canon body with a 55-250 STM lens on it. That is a pretty good valued kit lens that will give you some reach to start out.
