Hey guys. I'm looking for a third party reporting dashboard software. I've never looked into something like this so I don't even know where to start to be honest. Can someone please recommend a few good packages to start with, something that won't be terrible expensive?

Take a look at Qlikview and Tableau.

Tableau looks pretty nice, but it also looks like it mostly works with cube, or at least it would seem that way with dimensions and facts. Also, I do not see ability to use SSRS built reports with their own parameters. That's pretty important to us. We already have a lot of KPIs and graphical reports with selectable parameters, and we would like to keep using those. I'm trying to create a better way of viewing them rather than having to call them from Report Server every time.

Check out PerformancePoint (SharePoint dashboard solution). You can reuse your SSRS reports there if I'm not mistaken.
