For the amp, what's your budget? Look at Roland and Crate acoustic amps and check music online sites like Musician's Friend for best pricings. As far as strings go, everyone has a personal preference. Some favorites are Aquila, Worth, some like D'Addario and Ko'olau, you're gonna have to see suits you best.

i really like the sound of the aquila strings on my concert so ill give those a try
but as far as the amp nothing over $200 would be my preference
