Cheapest DIY pressurized CO2 system?


Where do you guys get your CO2 system parts?
I am on a 100$ budget and I am really confused what I really need and what is a luxury.
Can anyone recommend me some parts? I have a 55 gallon aquarium
Thanks in advance.

Single stage reg cornelius ~ 40 new

With 100-130 you can get a nice setup
