SharePoint 2010 Pricing

Since last two days I've been struggling to get a rough idea about SharePoint 2010 prices for different scenarios and couldn't find a single link from Microsoft where I can see the prices straight. So after lots of effort I gathered some information on the pricing model which might not be accurate as it's not from the Microsoft and might change in future.

SharePoint 2010 licensing overview without prices:

Windows Server 2008 Pricing:

SQL Server Pricing:
