Converting Giant FCR3 to dropbars

Hi,

I have a Giant FCR3 (2008) hybrid and I'm looking to swap over to drop bars. I know theres probably more to it than I realise but I'm looking for a bit of advice on what I HAVE to change out and what I could change later. I'm on a budget and would like to change the other parts over gradually after the bars.

Current bike specs

At the minute I'm looking at changing -

Bars (obviously) Pro LT
Shifters - Currently looking at these or used Sora STI's to keep costs down.

Later?
Bottom Bracket/Chainset - Tiagra
Cassette - Tiagra

Like I say I may be wrong on what I have to change but I am new at making any component changes to the bike myself. Any advice on compatibility issues or alternatives appreciated.
