Yeah. Probably better to hold off on the sub. And for that matter, you can get bookshelves that sound better for your money than floorstanders. So you loose a little of the low end extension, but then you gain SQ. That would seem better.
Also, do you have a good set of headphones? If not, putting around $200 towards a set would be a great idea for when you want to listen loud, even late at night. Some Beyers, Sennheisers, AKGs, Ultrasones, or Grados could be a very good idea. If interested, talk to the people at head-fi.org and they'll help you pick out a pair that suits your needs that is the best bang for the buck.
