I have not done too much research, I'm just starting to look things up. However, I was curious if some one could find me a list of parts which has everything I will need? Will about $150 be enough?

You're going to need dry ice, acetone, a pot, a mounting bracket, plenty of neoprene insulation, sealing string, a laser thermometer, and hardware you can afford to lose.

Everything on that list is pretty cheap, but a good copper cpu pot will run maybe 70 bucks? It's been a while since I last looked into it. The string, neoprene, and other things are 5 dollar items at most. If you buy a bracket, I guess that might be 20 bucks, but really you can make one yourself easily. DICE may cost a bit, but if you bug a local butcher he may be able to give you some free when he gets some nice meat.

You can ask around here, but for that kind of equipment, I would head over to XtremeSystems. There are people there who will mill you one to whatever dimensions you desire.

mounting bracket - may get one from who you buy a pot from, otherwise make one
neoprene insulation - hardware store
sealing string - hardware store

All kits from pot builders includes mountings and neoprene, so don't worry about that Thermometer isn't necessary but it's nice to have one
