The odroid-c2 is under $50, I've been using that. Can be powered from the USB 
flashing port, comes with 4 USB ports, Ethernet and a micro-SD card slot. It 
does come with 2GB of RAM, some of which is lost to video, but I've had zram 
enabled and didn't run into any problems until I tried to build boost, which 
needed more than the 1GB of swap I had. 4xA53 isn't the fastest, but I'm pretty 
sure its the cheapest option for the RAM. Downside is that it isn't quite yet 
supported by mainline kernel but there are people actively working on it.

Firefly has a couple of boards with 4 GB of RAM but they're closer to $200 
each. I have one ordered to see how that goes.
