I know you all know this but power isn't cheap. So derekhollister you will have to sacrifice something if you don't have the cash. Look at where all your money goes and see where you can cut. Budget and see if it's for you. By the time you're done you will probably look at 3-$4000 if you get the work done by somebody else.
