    $300 or less isn't going to happen.

    Exedy StageI or OE replacement

    History will tell whether your gearbox will hold; I can't. It's up to you to some extent.

    If your clutch only now started slipping, after ten years, it's a good clutch. I'd replace it with OEM or the OEM Exedy. Only if it were to fail again and soon would I look for a different clutch (notice I didn't say "upgraded," I said "different" and I believe I did so for good reason).

    As Matt (EJ) says, Exedy OEM replacement would be your best bet.

    When you're pushing a fair amount of power, which is cheaper and easier to replace? A clutch or a whole transmission?

    Exedy OEM or stage 1

    OEM flywheel.

    Click the link in my sig to get an idea of what is involved. There will be a few more steps since your car is a 2.0l.
