I don't know of what the prices are on a complete M4 RR these days but you could easily part one together for under $800.
Prices from Sableco.net.
A2/M4 Upper with Chrome lining and CAR Handguards...$443.00
A4/M4 Upper with Chrome Lining and CAR Handguards...$412.00
M4 Tactical Entry Upper with Chrome Lining, M4 Double Heatshield Handguards, Side Sling Swivel, and Tactical Carry Handle...$572.00
M4/A2 Tactical Entry Upper with Chrome Lining, M4 Double Heat Shield Handguards, and Side Sling Swivel...$536.00
M4 Entry Tactical Upper with Detachable Tactical Carry Handle and M4 Double Heat Shield Handguards-Pre Ban or Post Ban. Post Ban model includes Pressed on Flash Suppressor to give a Pre Ban appearance............$531.00
Throw in another $250 for a complete lower, snap em together and viola! Instant AR15.
The second deal sounds the best for to me. $412.00 for a complete chrome lined M4 profiled barrel isn't bad at all. That would bring the rifle cost to about $700 complete after paying shipping and FFL fees to your dealer for the lower.
Now that Rock River has Chrome Lined barrels I'm seeing less of a difference between them and Bushmaster.

I have heard good things about DPMS, plus they are a little bit cheaper than Bushmaster or RRA.

DPMS does indeed make a very good rifle. It might be less expensive than the Bushy's and such, but they are not inferior.
