Default PPD on a 9600GT XXX ed

I'm looking at picking up at 9600GT XXX edition, was wondering how much PPD it can do. There is one selling for $60 used, is there another card in that price range with better PPD I can spend my money on?

A 9600GT will do about 3000PPD, but for $60 it's a complete ripoff. 9600GSO/8800GS cards sell for less if you can still find any, or you could pick up a new GT 240 for around $60-70 from a deal. 8800GT/9800GT cards sometimes drop down to that level as well, though a lot of the time they sell for $70-90.

7800GTs cannot fold. Only 8000-series cards and newer.

Speedwise, a 7800GT is about the same as a 8600GT in games. Not sure about the PPD. If you can find a 8800GT for $60ish, I say go for that instead.

Lately I've been getting about 3400PPD with my 9600GT @ 1800 shaders. But as the others say, $60 is a rip off. I think they're worth around $45 now.

The search has come to an end, finally found an 8800GT AND a 9800GT, 1 for each of my rigs. I'm excited for > 10k PPD total
Its taken me a month to get to 60k with just CPU folding!
