Covert Fresh to Salt

My information is attached. Has anyone set up this large of a tank before? Could anyone begin to estimate how much money I would spend to convert from fresh to salt or reef?

If cost is an issue I would look for used things. Believe it or not if you shopped, you could get lighting used for about $500, a good skimmer for $200. Find a cheap rubbermaid tub ($20) for sump, and than a good return pump for $150 or less. These are used and lots of time searching. Southdown sand ($4 for 50 lbs) You need about 350 lbs for that tank. LIVEROCK is the most expensive, look for someone tearing down a tank. Goes for about $2/lb but if you get this anywhere else it is about $6. You need about 150-225 lbs of rock. Good test kits ($50) I hope this helps, and I am sure I am forgeting something.
