yes it is expensive, a year or more ago I would have directed you to a TechNet subscription which was around $100 a year and provided almost all of their software, but they are ending them and telling people to use the 180day trials. I wish they wouldn't have done this.
On a side not its not all that expensive to a company with a big network with a lot of different things to manage, it can be quite a money saver for some. For instance, xbox live leverages system center and they have roughly 1 admin to about 5000 servers, the beauty of system center is that the more of the suite you use the more automated things become.
