You can purchase a PIX501 from a Premier Cisco reseller for about $420 so pay no more than i guess 450. The 506E is alittle over $1000 so I have seen them for about $895. I would say anthing around numbers are a good buy.
Look on CDW for an example of their cost. And remember that 3DES is a free upgrade now so don't let someone try to charge you extra for that. Plus price would depend on user licenses also.
