Gears!

Hey all, I recently built up an on one steel hard tail, to keep it simple at the start I built up as a single speed machine however where I have moved to has more hills than I used to encounter and more road in between trails so I’d like to go faster and slower now! My mtb knowledge is circa 2008 so we’ll put it the loop. What should I be looking at for a geared setup - ideally single ring up front with whatever is a typical setup at the rear? Any suggestions advice helpful.

Found a supplier with them in stock but shifter, mech and cassette are looking like £180. 

If you end up buying seperately I'd go for Sunrace MX3 11-46t cassette, any Shimano long cage 11spd mech and any 10spd shifter then probably a Raceface or Superstar narrow wide chainring

I'm a bit out of touch with drivetrains, sorry, last bike with gears came complete and since then they've all been singlespeed!

Mix and match like Dave mentioned is probably the way to go given availability of parts at the moment. Don't rule out 2nd hand and 9 or 10 speed either.
