Lots and lots of LP's. The hardware can wait. :-) But, if you must the cartride should come first, providing that it is suitable for your arm, and next come the phono preamp. Great cartridge into a poor phono stage = garbage, poor cartridge into a great phone stage = garbage. You've got to get the match of the cartridge and phono stage right, within your budget of course.
