PCB populating costs with SMT

Does anyone know the populating costs associated with having about 70 0603 /
0805 / SOT23 parts, about 6 SOIC parts ranging from 8 to 16 pins, and a 44
pin TSOP IC mounted to one side of a PCB in 500 to 10,000 qty? Until we get
the PCB done, the assembly houses we checked with are not too helpful. Also,
are there any recommended low cost assembly houses, or ones to avoid?

Thanks,

You can get an estimate by laying the parts out roughly on the exact
board dimensions and submitting that. For routine jobs the assembly
house doesn't care about the circuit configuration - they just need a
BOM and the approximate placements. Let them know that there will be
some revisions later. Ask them for suggestions for modifications to
reduce the assembly cost.

Populating a board is about $0.02 per part. So it would cost about $1.50 in
total is my guess.
