To answer the question as many have said,

Larger State Capitols + Affordable:

St Paul
Columbus
Indianpolis
Phoenix

Mid-Size + Affordable:

Albany
Madison
Salt Lake City (kind of)
Raleigh
To be fair, the use of a slash in English means "either or or both" more often than it is in place of simply just "and." I had the impression the OP was looking for cities that happened to be large or capitals, not necessarily both.

I think I mentioned this in the other thread, but some very affordable capital cities on the smaller end include: Lansing, Topeka, Springfield, Lincoln, Albany; many of these are much more affordable than their trendier (and larger) counterparts such as Madison, Columbus, Austin, etc.

Richmond VA is a lot like Austin in the 90s was. In 20 years it will be a lot like Austin now - the affordability is a window that's obviously going to close. That's what happens when places are nice and cheap, people move there..

Charleston, West Virginia is a very affordable capital city though it's not a large city

Baton Rouge, Jackson, and Montgomery are more affordable than some other parts of the country and BR is more affordable than New Orleans though prices are certainly rising. The increased COL in New Orleans due to the yuppie transplants from out of state have pushed more and more people toward Baton Rouge.

Memphis and St. Louis are relatively affordable large cities though both are a little more downscale and have a lot of urban ills. Baltimore is affordable relative to other East Coast cities but not compared to the entire nation.

None are capital cities though.

My suggestions would include Columbia, Richmond, Raleigh, Tallahassee, and OKC.
