Cheap Erwin replacement ?

I'd love some suggestions to replacing Erwin with something cheaper.  

It needs to handle Micrsoft Sql Server.  MS Access and Oracle are nice to have's but not in the lest bit mandatory.

Thanks everyone,
Bruno

Ewin is a modeling tool.  We use it create or modify database designs on our development server and then the product will generate scripts sql to make production look like development.

Well, PowerDesigner is what we've used for years.  In this case, I would usually say you get what you pay for--can't really put a price on the amount of time you save yourself!

Have you looked at Xcase?  It's not too bad, but it's still about 799 for a sql server version (http://www.xcase.com/).
