On that budget, you can get a VERY ENTRY level set up...
Figure$ 200 for an AV-R, $200 min for a sub and that leaves 500 for speakers (not a lot to get decent speakers)...you could probably get 4 Andrew jones Pioneer bookshelves or 4 Infinity primus p163, with the matching respective centers for close to 500 and that system would bet almost any HtiB.
you could buy an AVR, a better sub and two main speakers. That could get you up to the RW-12 Klipsch 12 inch sub and would leave you 400 for a pair of Fronts and then just got 2.1 until you can afford to upgrade.
Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and EMP e5Bi surrounds, Outlaw LFM1 Plus sub, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: Philharmonics- BMR in a 2.0 system, music only
