You don't have to buy expensive clothing, either, unless fashion is more important to you than utility. Start with your own closet (which may contain a surprising amount of what you need) and then head for thrift shops and military surplus. After that, check the big box stores (their athletic depts.) for things like wicking tops, underwear, track pants, track shorts. Just make sure there is no cotton in what you're buying!

There are a lot of "cheap" gear lists around, and Mark Verber (see Lori's post) has links to most of them. I think he missed this one.
