Default Cost when matching cpu and motherboard

When matching a cpu and motherboard, which should be generally more expensive, the cpu or the motherboard?

I would have assumed it was the cpu, but then I read that the motherboard is extremely important, because it can't be upgraded...

I saw a combo for sale, an Athlon 64 3200 matched with Asus A8v KT00 board, the CPU is around $150, the motherboard 67$ separately, the combo is cheaper.

It can be any of these, it just depends what you buy.

generally speaking the cpu is usually the more expecsive component, although the motherboard is still important. The cpu is more important IMO.
