I own all the accessories that Paul listed except the Planer.

i would run all of the accessories towards the low end of the range Paul quoted.

Let me comment that the belt sander is a particularly good tool.
The strip sander is also a handy thing, especially with it’s ability to sand inside holes.
The bandsaw is good, but only for light work.
The jointer is okay but it is only a 4 inch jointer. It’s only real purpose is to put a clean edge on a board for gluing.
