It depends a lot on dimensions... and whether you have flexibility/availability to buy cheap alternatives.
For example, for ADA90p dimension (46gals)
Crystal glass tank from China import ; 100 USD
Crystal glass tank from ADA ; 600 USD
and the difference is indistinguishable at 2 meters
Eheim pro 600 ; 270 USD
Sunsun 370 GPH ; 100 USD (30 USD on amazon sale)
Lights - single metal halide 150w ; 50 USD
Lights - BML LED Dutch 36inch ; 275 USD
Use top + cap (say I cap mine with ADA) ; 40 USD
Use pure ADA (say 5 bags) ; 140 USD
So a ADA90p setup w/o cabinet can end up costing less than 500 or more than 1000, or even 2000 if you go for the more/most expensive components available. Some stuff will impact the tank a lot more than others. Personally, I will spend more money on Lights, CO2 equipment, and save money on the rest of the stuff.
