If it was me, I'd look on craigslist and buy a name brand unit produced in the last few years from someone who barely used it. (Lincoln or miller) get a demo that shows it is working right. You probably will get shielding gas thrown in, which is a great benefit.
That will save you 50% easy.

I have a 220V / 175 amp MIG by Miller and a chinese made inverter TIG, 250 amp (everlast) that I bought new for about 1/2 the price of the miller with the same features. From what I remember of my research at the time, Everlast makes industrial grade machines. You might look at their low end MIG to see the price point.
