Well, the best price I've seen so far for an Integra was about $9500, and the most probably around $16000. I'll probably get it as cheap as possible and spend money on visuals to begin with, and maybe some performance tuning here and there to make it sweet for drifting.
Sorry to burst your bubble but the Integra and Prelude are both front wheel drive. That pretty much means they won't be any good for drifting. Doesn't mean you can't make them better though. I'd say that the Integra is the best for modifying. Especially if you can manage to get hold of a Type R. And in white.
If your going to up the power, make sure you get advice from a professional company or get them to do it for you. It's important that you upgrade the handling as well (brakes, suspension etc). When it come to exterior parts, it's entirely up to you how you want it to look.
You can have it as practical or as insane as you want, depending on how your going to use the car. Just no ridiculously large spoilers and "22 rims, OK? Also, if your going to fit a big sound system in the boot, just remember that it'll add a lot of weight, meaning the performance in general will suffer for it.
If you want a car for drifting, something like a Nissan 200SX or Mazda RX7 will be right up your street. They're fairly easy to come by and doing them up for getting sideways is a doddle.
