Pricier than 2 2-ways and tee, but easier to deal with. Here's a link for 'cheap' 1/2" SS 3-ways.

http://www.amazon.com/L-Type-3-Way-S...257423&sr=8-54

This was about the cheapest I could ever find - I've got 5 of them on my build (in progress) - but it simplifies my plumbing substantially.

EDIT: Also make sure you understand the difference between L-type and T-type 3-way valves too. I'm guessing you'll want the L-type, but T-types have their uses. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_va...ay_ball_valves)
