This is all true for the seasoned Myth user but for someone just getting 
into it or considering getting in to it, real world costs are quite 
valuable for putting things in perspective. The more recent the better. 
The op is not looking for exact prices/specs in order to duplicate a 
system. In fact, he did not ask for "detailed explanations about how we 
all built our systems", he was trying to see the big picture and decide 
if it is worth it for him. IMO there is no better way than to ask those 
that have done it.

Me thinks you may want to re-read the original post. :-)
