Out of those recorders, I'd definitely go with the R-44. Heard lots of good things about it - I'd say it's the best bang for it's buck in that price range.
The RØDE NTG-1 is a decent mic to start with, but that would be one of the first things I'd upgrade once you get a bit more money. There is a very large price jump from low end shotguns to high end shot guns, so I realize it won't be able to happen right away - but again, the NTG-1 is a great mic to start with.
Love the RØDE blimp. Haven't seen the RØDE boom pole, but I'm sure it's fine. I like the fact that it has foam on the grip - will help with handling noise a lot.
If you are going to be using the boom pole indoors, I might consider getting another shock mount (in addition to the blimp) since the blimp is a little big and heavy to be used indoors, and your NTG-1 will only come with a simple mic clip. The NTG-1 is very susceptible to handling noise, so you will want to make sure it's properly shock mounted. You can usually find a decent shock mount for a boom pole for under $50
The only other thing I would really look at is the headphones. I would see if you can upgrade to the Sony MDR7506 headphones if you can - they are pretty much standard issue field phones.
One last question - why the wireless? Or is this gear for production audio as well? Remember that you'll need some sort of bag (pro or otherwise - pro is usually easier, but I've seen people make do with less) to do ENG work. In that price range, the Sennheiser Evo series is definitely the best, just realize that it doesn't have a very long range (safely). In a crowded room, I MIGHT give it 50' - 75' line of sight before I start worrying about hits and dropouts. If you are doing ENG and staying close range though, you'll have no problems.
Hope this helps!
