$60, can put two cards in there with no modification, three if you use a PCIe x1 to x16 converter cable.

Even cheaper if you have some DDR2 memory on hand:

If you need to buy memory then the DD3 board is cheaper. I personally have two of the DDR2 boards and two of the DDR3 boards mining under Win 7 without issue.

I was looking for a cheap board that I could mine 4 GPU's off of and the best I found was this Biostar A870U3 for $65.  You'll need cable extenders, but I couldn't find anything cheaper.  If anyone knows of a cheaper board that has any combo of 4 PCI express slots, I'd love to know.
