For a paper containing many equations in Word format, "a little side money" probably won't be enough.

Depends on what platform you're on. For Mac OS X, I highly recommend gwTeX (complete setup, easy installation):


For Windows, try MikTeX:


Both distributions do not include editors, though. If you want to use a WYSIWYG interface, check out LyX.


If all else fails read the instructions. - Donald Knuth
