I was in your situation this spring, spent about $400 gross including pump and now I'm doing 10 gl without lifting. I know it looks a bit odd:
My main needs were:
1.10 gallon batches
2. No lifting.
3. Open up space in my garage. ( 3'x18" footprint)
4. No welding. (Didn't want to spend the winter learning to weld instead of brewing).
I was already doing all grain so I had the coolers. Bought the keg shells on craigslist ($40), the portable shelving from costco.com ($70), the burners ($120) and pump ($120) from my LHBS.
After I sold my old burner and 30qt boil pot in addition to a few extra keggles I made, my net cost was less than $150 for the upgrade.
It's a thought, hope it helps.
