You haven't even considered a good used bike yet!
I'm kinda in the same boat as you. Or, I was just in the same boat. I finally decided on a frame and set-up that I've wanted for years. I bought it used, and am saving a ton of money.
I bid on it on eBay, and it didn't meet the reserve price. The seller contacted me after the closing, in part because I asked him what his reserve was during the bidding time and made him an offer before bid closing. We settled on a fair price and I should be getting it in the next week.
But, I knew what I wanted.
