Turns out I might not have as good of access to my college funds as I thought. I will see what I can do, but I might not be picking one up for a while.
The DE2 looks nice, but I've also been eyeing the Nexys2
board. A bit cheaper, and has been used at my college in a few courses in the past (according to google).
Anyone know where I can buy an Altera DE2 Development Board? eBay is out of them for sale...
You could check the list of authorized international distributors
(including Digikey) but you'll have to email Altera for the educational pricing (if it applies).
