First Build (130mm) Help - on a Budget

I have a spare 130mm deadcat style frame this will be my first build. I am planning on using 1306 motors, but I am a little baffled at the number of options for Flight Control etc.
I have been watching tons of Youtube videos blogs and other pages to learn about this process.
I need to build it on a budget (my wife is awesome but even she has her limits!).
I have researched and I am just not sure what to go with, so I am looking for suggestions to make this 130 build be fun, and as in expensive as possible.
Any suggestions, links or help would be massively appreciated.

I built a cheap ultra light 3inch with racerstar 1104 4000kv motors. Dirt cheap and flies great. If you want 1306 motors for better performance, it will be more expensive
