As said, from a points perspective a 2 or 4 socket processor system is far superior with respect to power usage than running a lot of graphics cards.
From a science perspective, graphic folding benefits a different project set because it uses different cores to fold with. What the different projects are specifically, I don't know - but I have read on other folding forums that they want to fold with a graphics card for specific project reasons. If you go the GPU route, use Nvidia graphics cards.
I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.
