I'm fairly new to this as well, so I hope someone else helps out as well...
First... A filter! I have a very basic HOB
on mine! And it works very well for me.
The you need to cycle your tank of course! Your gonna need about 10-15 lbs of live rock. (40-60$) Or base rock and seed it... Up to you! Some live sand 15$. You can cycle it with just that for now!
Lighting ... I got a light for about 60$ and it works awesome!! ... For now. Will probably crash on me soon... But let's hope not! You don't need good lighting till after your cycle when you start getting corals!
And a powerhead ... Which you will want to get as soon as possible during or after the cycle! Get a koralia hydor nano! (25$)
Hope this helps! I have a thread on my journey... And that will be a great reference for you! I got help from a lot of experienced people! And I started out just like you
