What to buy?

In another post I was refered to aquariumfertilizer.com to buy dry fertilizers. I'm unsure what to get or how much. I have a 75 gallon that I want heavily planted with moderate to high light plants.

NPK (nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium) and micros

You need KNO3, which adds nitrate and potassium, KH2PO4, to add phosphate, and if you need extra potassium, K2SO4, potassium sulfate. Also, Plantex CSM+B for micronutrients

You can get a combo pack which includes those 4 from several places, aquariumfertilizer doesn't appear to have that though.

Do you have pressurized CO2?

I am working on a pressurzed co2 system. I'm trying to be economical about it, so if you can suggest a cheap source for co2 cylinders and regulators, I'm all ears. How long would a combo pack last me?
