Well, depends on what you want to spend. If you get a VS Series marker and you want to replace the reg you will need to A. Purchase a Trinity Frontblock (which would also give you the volumizer) or B. Buy a Trinity or CP reg adaptor.

Now that that is astablished, I would recommend a commonly used one, CP makes good ones, I havent used one but I've heard that AKA makes some good reg, for example there Sidwinder or 2 Liter.
Personal Choice-Sidwinder

I would not get a drop forward, I hate them, plus they screw up your shooting posture. For ASA's I would recommend a CP Direct mount or a Uni mount. Personally, I would go with the Unimount, but thats just me. Another one that some members on here have tried is the DP RAPS ASA. I haven't tried this one yet, but I want to, it seems like a solid little ASA, Druid has a review on one and I know chnk and MVS1 have one also. It is up to you.
Personal Choice-DP RAPS or Unimount

One of the most important things, in my eyes anyways, is the internals. I would suggest getting an Alamo City Paintball (http://www.alamocitypb.com) delrin Bolt and Delrin Striker.

Another main upgrade would be a board. There are a couple for the VS2/3, which are, Scenario Dreams (http://www.scenariodreams.com) T-Board, the Tadao (http://www.tadaotechnologies.com) board (which also has a an upgrade chipe for it) and the ever so popular Virtue (http://www.virtuepb.com) board. I like the Tboard the best, but again its personal preferance. Alot of people like the Virtue board because of its programability (sp).

Now onto barrels. Barrels are perhaps THE MOST IMPORTANT thing that makes a Paintball gun work well, without a good barrel your gat would be nothing! Barrel kits are probly the smartest choice because you can change the bore size to match the paint. Some good barrel kits- Freak/Freak JR, Evil Pipe, Powerlight Sceptor (NeedForSpeed can confirm that), Stiffi Switch, Sly, Dye Ultralite
Personal Choice-Siffi Switch or Freak back with Siffi tip

So, all in all I say
Regulator-Sidewinder
ASA-DP RAPS or Unimount
Internals-ACP
Board-SD Tboard
Barrel-Stiffi Switch or Freak back with Siffi front

EDIT* I hope this helps, I spent alot of time writing all of this

from what i've heard, the 2Liter+ is the best HPA reg out there and its recharge blows all other regs away.

check the Ultimate Resource thread in my sig.

You need a spyder threaded back, and the front is made shorter, and it is made to go into the threads of the freak set.
You dont put a back and a whole barrel together, its 2 pieces to "Half" pieces to make one.

You need to buy a Freak/ Freak JR back first (obviously) but you cant just put a S!ffi barrel on the front, there are special fronts that are made to go on a Freak back. I will search for one on the net
