Get a basic amp/guitar. You don't have to go all out, even though people say "get a good guitar first if you want to keep playing". The budget lines are fine for the beginner. If you are going to keep playing, the guitar you are playing shouldn't matter, look at hendrix. He probably played on a piece of crap starting out but he loved the music.

For a beginner, I'd say the best guitar is a Classical acoustic cheapie.
Classical means nylon strings, which will be MUCH easier on your fingers for the 6-8 months or so it'll take to develop the calluses necessary to handle steel strings.
And cheapie because you don't know what you want and what you don't want in a guitar, you don't even know if this is the instrument for you, so it makes no sense to spend a lot of money on something that may end up in the attic or a garage sale within a few weeks.
You can get a student model for less than $ 50.

Whatever you can afford that feels right to you when you hold it and sounds good to you when you play it. You don't have to spend a small fortune to get a good guitar.

For your guitar budget around 400-600$ which will certainly last, for your amp there are some that would cost around 200$, we're talking basic instruments, anyways there's no need to choose the most expensive one

What's your budget?
You looking to play electric or acoustic?
What style of music you wanna play?

All key questions before you can get a good answer.
