advice on shower system

hi again.

so i'm looking for a new shower system to use in my remodel. this will be shower only, no bath.

i'd like to have:
-on/off mixing valve
-3-function diverter valve (shower only, handshower only, both)
-wall mounted hand shower
-ceiling mounted shower head

total: $618.85

trim kit - 107.67
valve - 134.13
shower head - 117.16
hand shower - 234.94
drop elbow - 24.95

does this seem about right for what it is? i feel like i might be missing a cheaper but still quality alternative but am not sure. the moen valve with integrated diverter seems like a good cost saver. it keeps me from buying a separate valve and trim kit.
i'm new to this so any and all advice is welcome and wanted.

That's cheaper than some of the Delta combos I have seen and looks like it will fit your needs. Plus less plumbing to achieve the same results than the Deltas I have used in the past. As long as it fits your budget, I'd say go for it.

thanks for the reassurance, wrangler. i kind of got sticker-shocked by the price of some of these things. i just wanted to do a gut check.

so i might go in a little different direction. swapping out the handshower for the integral body sprays will save nearly $200 which is a fair compromise to me. this is going in a townhouse also so i don't want to REALLY outclass the rest of it with a fancy spa system. also, this is a delta which is an upgrade from moen in my mind.

total - 432.48
trim - 272.00
valve - 70.98
shower head - 89.50
