Advice needed: Fork, stem, seatpost, and bars for $500

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Advice needed: Fork, stem, seatpost, and bars for $500

I'm building up a Dean road frame, and I'm looking for a front fork, stem, seatpost, and bars.

I want to spend about $500 for all four pieces together. Quality parts that are lightweight is my top priority.

The bike will be for long solo rides, fast group rides, road races, circuit races, and maybe some time trials and crits.

I'm thinking a Enve 2.0 fork and easton ea70 for the bars, seatpost, and stem, but I really don't know much about it. I'm fine with mixing brands.

Any suggestions and advice will be appreciated.

My very limited input is that Enve forks are probably the coolest looking and best made on the road. Never heard a bad thing about them. The problem is that you'll be setting yourself back $300+ for the fork alone, and it'll be hard to get equally high end bars, stem, and seatpost for $200 total. Then again, the fork is the most important of all of those components, so it's probably worth it.
