1By tour? Check the tour operators.
Independently? I'd think Vietnam.

3For a start a Cambodian visa used to be only US$20 and Vietnam's visa about $100.

4VOA after agent fees $10.00 and $25.00 on arrival at airport i thought was reasonable . and after comparing hotels meals and airlines with travelling here in australia both are cheap as chips. But Vietnam over all seems cheaper .

10Vietnamese are business people, Cambodians are farmers.
Yes, they seem more easy going (others might say lazy/ slower) than Vietnamese. In Vietnam 90% of the tourists stay on the tourist path, in Cambodia more get out into the provinces (it's tiny compared to VN).
I like both. Not sure which is safer, looking at the traffic fatalities they're about the same.

11If cheapness is the deciding factor, why not just stay at home?
Surely you are not travelling just to save money. Why are you going to SE Asia - are there things you want to see and do?
Study guidebooks, blogs, etc and decide what you want see and where you want to go. For example if you are set on Angkor Wat, then the price is irrelevant, because there is nothing comparable in Vn.

13I found Cambodia much cheaper, in that it was easy to get around independently and therefore choose what I wanted to spend.
