I had a friend asking me what I could build him for $1,000 and I came up with the idea for a thread. I'm proposing a thread where someone could post their complete sourced $1,000 kits. All someone else would have to do is order the parts from the supplied links and assemble it. Let's see what you come up with. Here is what I came up with for my buddy.
