I'm no expert and I'm still learning having joined about a year ago. 
Here's my progression on recorders:  SonyDAT, Tascam HD-P2, Sound 
Devices MixPre for the HD-P2, Sound Devices 722. Consider exercising a 
bit more patience and aim for the SD 722.  

What I spent on the HD-P2 + MixPre got me close to the 722. What never 
registered and really is important to me is form factor. Don't get me 
wrong the HD-P2 + SD MixPre is a very flexible setup that yields great 
recordings (to my ear). Put these comparable elements into a much 
smaller package and the SD722 may be ofr you. I'm still comparison 
recording the 722 since I cut my ears on the Tascam+MixPre results but 
mostly because there are many options in the SD 722 with which to 
experiment. One thing I can say, and which I first tested for, is that 
the high-pass filters have really proven their worth.

What ever you go with, I'd say it boiils down to being not so much a 
matter of budget as a question of savings.
