Charlie- You didn't mention what cheap is to you but in my experience AV preamp are generally higher end products and would be more expensive. I even had a heck of a time finding an AV integrated. NAD makes them at fairly low price point (think I paid about $350 new for a prologic unit). A sub will really improve your enjoyment of movies and you'll need rears for surround. A prologic unit would be pretty cheap now, but DD is definately worth the extra $. You will definately want a center channel speaker.
