What are the cheapest possible systems for each CPU socket?
- Since >= 50% the replies here are PC Builder ones, I figure this will reveal which platforms have the best upgrade paths, etc.

Feel free to go as low as PCI Express v2.0 on the motherboards.

Wouldn't that be some old 478 P4. I mean, you see people giving them away for free on Craigslist.

...for each CPU socket?
- I know there's a lot more than two CPU sockets on the market.

get on pcpartpicker and work it out! Why are you waiting for someone else to do it for you?

obviously you start with the cheapest case, PSU and drive config and then just swap out the cheapest boards with the lowest end processor you can find. I don't really want to take 20 minutes to work out builds nobody is actually going to use.
