Buy one or drill one?

I am really considering giving up the drilling idea and just buying a Deep Blue reef ready 75 for $270 and some change or a 90 that runs $320 or so. I figure I can swing that and not have to worry about drilling, overflow box, etc. and I could use the current 29 FW as a sump like it has been suggested several times. I will DIY a sump and stand (or buy a stand) and save up for good lights.
I am feeling pretty overwhelmed by the amount of options out there and the prices.

Not really a question, just a rant I guess. Wondering what others would do or have done.

Choice is easy. Buy the one already drilled and ready to roll. Less yiu have to do. I was limited because of the size of the tank I was looking for. If you've got a drilled tank picked out, ya gotta get that. It takes a bit more knowledge to get one drilled and make a box for that overflow.

Yea, the price jumps dramatically with bigger tanks.
It's a $50 difference from 75 to 90 but a $230 jump from 90 to 110.
