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.
CPU>MB
MB>CPU
MB=CPU

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