free development Kit

If $150 US is within your budget, then try a small kit from Xilinx or Al.tera. Check the features to see if the board has everything you need, such as memory, I/O ports, displays, whatever. Here's a nice list of boards from many vendors:

I've used this one, the Xilinx Spartan-3E Starter Kit:

Virtex-II and Virtex-5 boards tend to be a lot more expensive.
