It really depends on what prices are like in your area. At one of my lfs they have a setup for saltwater that costs 600 usd. This includes the tank, lighting fixture, a stand, heater, protien skimmer, salt, powerhead, filter, water conditioner and fish food.

yeah, the only reason I haven't started a saltwater yet. I really want to but I can't afford it.

It isnt as expensive once you start it and maintain. It is just a good amount of money in the begining.
