How can my PC, Xbox and projector all (cheaply) get along?

I am looking for an affordable receiver that can handle my new low-budget home theater setup. I will be connecting a PC and an Xbox 360, both ideally via HDMI, to a projector that does not have HDMI pass-through capability. What is the cheapest receiver with multiple HDMI inputs that can take the incoming video signal and send it along to the projector?

Ideally, I'd like a soundbar or 2.1 (or even 2.0) channel setup, because I don't want to be running lots of cables around the room. I don't even really want a subwoofer, as I am in an apartment building and am reluctant to vibrate my downstairs neighbor's ceiling just so I can play Call of Duty with more realistic explosions.
The receivers I'm finding on Amazon all cost at least $200 or so... they also all have the capability of handling like 5 HDMI sources, driving 7.1 speakers, and doing all sorts of fancy stuff that I just don't need. Is there a simpler solution?
