To get a relatively good estimate you will also need to know the size of the unit, which is measured in tons (2 ton, 2.5 ton, 3 ton, etc.). The size depends on the cooling load of your home.
That said, I've seen a 16 SEER 4 ton Comfortmaker for sale at about $1500 and a 3 ton 16 SEER for about $1300. Installation will vary quite a bit, but the total may come out in the $8,000 range, but again this is a very round number.
The best thing to do is get at least three bids and compare them and what they include and guarantee. If you can, try to get more.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present. To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
