is there any way i can buy a really good opengl font system?

i don't feel like there would be much point in me writing my own and making my own fonts.

I'm not understanding what you mean... You can use sdl_ttf to render text as needed. Alternatively, GLUT itself supports rendering of stroked characters:

And lastly, if you want to use a library there is always this:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ftgl/

This guy's book has a simple font rendering system, and he explains how to add new fonts. Everything is in c#. He uses the Tao OpenGL libraries, which still work great, but you may wish to port to OpenTK. Hope that helps.
