Here for the gear

I personally wouldn't do a surround mix on a headphone monitoring plug-in. HRTF is fun, but I don't think it's at a point yet (if ever) where it can be used as a substitute to a physical 5.1 setup.

If that's your only option, so be it I guess.

In any case, Reaper is your best bet if cost is an issue. (And if it wasn't an issue, Reaper would probably still be one of the better options.)
You can use Reaper in unrestricted trial mode for a period of time.

For a tad more than a reaper license which is 60$, you could also subscribe to Pro Tools ultimate for one month and cancel your subscription right after.
