Note that you will need over 2K PP to buy out the division. It is usually best to buy out the individual Regiments/Brigades before combining because when they combine to for a division, more devices (usually guns) are added and you have to pay additional PP because of that. If they are bought out beforehand, the total cost in PP is less (BUT - make sure you buy them all out to the same Unrestricted HQ! Best to pick a Corps HQ that is under SWPAC HQ, even if it hasn't arrived yet.)
Also note the leaders of each Regiment/Brigade. When they combine, the one with the highest RANK will become Division leader. Some of the higher rank Generals are absolute duds - suitable for rear area duties only. If that is the case for your prospective leader, buy a really good leader of higher rank (or the same rank if that is the guy you are replacing) for one of the units. It is usually less expensive to buy a Regimental/Brigade leader than to replace a Divisional leader.
