By far, the most cost-effective FPGA boards seem
to the the Xilinx-based boards sold by Digilent, Inc.

They sell a number of nice "all-in-one" boards
suitable for an entire vintage-style system,
e.g, the $99 Spartan 3 starter kit, and a modular
system more suitable for integration into a larger
homewbrew digital system, e.g., the D2SB and accessory
