On the cheap a GT240 is a very good choice for about 4K ppd on average.
Obviously if you have money to spend an i7 doing BigAdv WU's is going to be efficent.
However if all you have is 200 and a pair of PCI-e Slots, you can't go wrong with the GT240. Thats 100w for a pair, and about 9K ppd.

More than fair really.

Well I picked up the XFX GT240 512MB GDDR5. Had a $20 MIR on it as well, so worked out to be like $60?

Just got my server all setup again though and back to folding. Hopefully I can gain some PPD over my 8800GTS 320M.

Idle was around 80W and while folding (GPU only) it's at 125W. Stock clocks for now too. Though I'll probably bump up the shader clock in time.
