Everyone has their favorite extruders; for some of them, there's a choice of hot ends, and possibly other things to choose from (e.g. heater resistor vs. cartridge for the Qu-bd extruder). Speaking to the head of the RepRap group at my local Hackspace, they've tried a few of them and prefer a geared extruder similar to Wade's with Greg's improvements (very similar to these two) and the J-Head Mk V-B hot ends. Once you've got those parts, you may want a heated bed, or maybe just a piece of glass, a bracket of some description to attach the extruder to the Z rail, and, obviously, some filament. What the bracket looks like depends on your choice of extruder.

In short, what I'm trying to say is that there are too many variables for anyone to come up with a BOM that's generally applicable.
