    Hello...welcome.

    Your cam will usually come with memory card, some may even come with a bag. Do invest in a dry cabinet first, the rest can wait.

    Look into the Market Place. You will find
    - Lists of photographic shops
    - Feedback and discussions about shops and their staff
    - Price guides as rough indicator, including the source so that you can call the shops for further inquiries / stock.
    In addition, there is the Equipment section where all kinds oif equipment (including Dry Cabinets) are discussed in detail.
    Spend some time reading the forum. No point only looking at the top sections. The gems are deeper

    haha okay okay. I read a lot of reviews. And since I'm just starting, I should get a D40, and more lens. It's a better investment that way. agree?

    Actually no... The D40 is obsolete. Even the D40X and D60 are obsolete. If you're sure on the nikon path, get a D3000 or D5000.

    It's ok, but for the same money you can get far better.
