Need buying help

Hi campers. Okay. I was going to get Apple's Production Suite (Final Cut Pro HD, DVD Studio PRO, Motion). $1299. Eh, steep, but I can deal. Enter Final Cut Express, all I really need. $299. Way better. But then, Motion. Is. Awesome. Another $299. So, nearly $600 bucks. Almost to 1300. Question is: FCE will do all I need, and Motion will do the stuff I want to do but might not NEED to do Right Now. I also don't have a need to make DVDs beyond iDVD. Sacriligeous, but true. Should I just get FCE, and work it to the gills, and if need be, get Motion? Or should I bite the bullet and get the full Prod Suite? Personally, my gut says, go FCE and upgrade along the way as needed.
