What's your project? What features do you need?

See if the Xilinx "High Volume Starter Kit Bundle" starter kit fits you needs. It's only $99 US, and it includes a Spartan-3 board (made by Digilent), disks, manuals, download cable, and even a CPLD kit. You can buy plug-in "accessory boards" directly from Digilent. You can also buy the same Spartan-3 board from Digilent -- you get fewer bundled goodies, but you can get an optional larger FPGA.

Here's a nice list of FPGA boards:

I wish Xilinx would hurry up their new Spartan-3E Starter Kit. Now it's delayed until February:
