Check out Reaper

Only $60 for a personal license. You can download the trial for free(its uncrippled). Its really quite powerful, and it is professional grade...Its the best deal out there in my opinion.

There are several cheap or even free options that can make quite a professional job. My recommendations would be:
MuLab - try the free version, then you see from there how it goes
Reaper - demo version doesn't have limitations and doesn't expire, so you can use it until you're convinced enough to buy it
Podium Free - a bit limited but as a beginner tool might be just enough
FL Studio Demo - well, doesn't save projects but still can export wav or mp3 files, so, why not try the most popular program here?
Anvil Studio - a bit dated but... well... free

There's also

Ableton Live Demo

Although some are way more affordable than others, I'd recommend you use these trials/demos and find one that is easy, comfortable and good for you to work with. Then save up for it! Good luck!

Peace and love,
