Check Engine

Well, I posted a little while ago asking what the check engine light was. It was a code 300 and 304 random misfires, So I brought it to toyota to check it out and they said I need a whole new computer.
IT COSTS $3700.00 eek eek
But its covered under warranty.
So im going to go over the parts since ive had my car
Tranny $2500.00(warranty)
Engine 1 $2500.00
Engine 2 $4000.00 (warranty)
Computer $3700.00

Well...thats my car in a nutshell..do you think the computer is the right price??

It like almost dies at stops...i have to hit the gas just to keep it going and my car is completely stock(for now)
AEM CAI on the way...but hopefully it will be fixed soon.
I cant believe it costs 3700 for that tho...i dunno why it needs a new comp to...i figured spark plugs would fix it.
