Try Futurlec.

I heard support is nearly non-existent, but quality is fine, and price is VERY good.

By far the cheapest:

No need to bow down to my awesome product finding greatness  ;D

While that is a HUGE protoboard for a really low price (i'd reccomend getting 3 for the price break), the quality is kinda meh. It isn't perfectly level, and if you are hard on your connectors the metal rings will pull away from the board

Awesome guys! i'll try both those sources. i prefer to use the kind of board with set lines to save me some soldering but the big board is the kind i like to cut up for little circuits.
