LN2 is around $1/L and dice is around $1/lb.
A GPU pot will cost between $100-$250.
A single stage phase chance system will cost around $300-$1000.
A cascade (two stages+) will cost between $1000-$3500+.
I currently have a CPU pot and a cheap single stage (SS) phase change system. I'm looking to pick up a dewar (LN2 container) so I can expand into using LN2 since the temperatures are so much better. Once I do this, I'd also like to get a better CPU pot.
It's like many other hobbies in that you can jump in at a fairly decent price to figure out if you like it (Less than $100 if you get stuff used). If you do like it, you can spend thousands of dollars easily.
