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.

nilocg sells some pretty simple and cheap CO2 setups made from home depot parts and a paint ball valve. you should find him in the for sale section. kit with on/off valve, a needle valve, tubing, and diffuser was around 51 dollars last time i looked.
