It's probably better to start a new thread in the tripod forum for that discussion.

The short answer is the Manfrotto XPROB is a good option. The others to consider at a similar price point are models from Feisol and Induro. You can always sell that tripod and trade up later if your photography warrants.

The Manfrotto ballhead is okay, but take a look at the Markins Q10 and Markins Q20. At this point, if you have any extra money, a good ballhead is a place to invest. The top quality ballheads don't cost a lot more, and truly making using a tripod much more pleasant. Also be sure your tripod head uses generic Arca Swiss plates rather than a proprietary version. You'll need a camera plate to attach your camera to the ballhead's quick release.

Be sure you read Thom Hogan's article on tripod selection. It will help in the long run.
