Have you considered buying an Action Pack subscription? It's a lot cheaper than buying VS with MSDN.

You need an MS Partner account, but that just a matter of filling in a web form IIRC.

TIP: as a devleoper, you need the Development and Design version, NOT the Solution Provider version.

It comes with a limited MSDN subscription. The only thing I miss is Expression Blend.
