You didn't say what type of gearing (modern or threaded cassette) you have, but, these are fairly inexpensive:

Black Velocity 36H

Silver Velocity36H

Black Mavic 36H

Silver Mavic 36H

Fulcrum Racing 7 at $249

Velocity Chukker are really strong, but, mostly SS.

what tire sizes to cx riders run? ah,k, the fulcrom 7 cx says up to 35c.
I'd say 15mm.

High-end, racing wheels will be ~13mm. Cyclocross and commuter wheels will be 15-18mm. 29er MTB wheels will be ~20mm.

I've run 40mm, on my Tricross (16mm). But, I've seen a 50mm, 29er MTB tire on a Tricross, too.
