Unfortunately, "affordable" can mean very different things to different people. Some might say that a 300mm f/2.8 Nikkor with or without a 1.4x TC is inexpensive - when compared with a 500mm VR Nikkor...!

As mentioned above, the 70-300mm VR Nikkor (or the Tamron equivalent) is probably the cheapest way to get decent quality and focal length. The next step up might be one of the Sigma 150-500mm OS or 50-500mm OS offerings, or a 300mm f/4 Nikkor.
