What are some of the best options?

Most folders will say GTX 460 $-watt-ppd.

I'd say GTX 560TI

^ this for PP$ (points per dollar invested). Up front investment.

agreed, 460's are very efficient, and are quite the contender

my 460's almost never drop below 12k PPD, even while surfing the web and doing some other light tasks.

That much? My stock clocks 560 Ti gets a very consistent 12.1k -12.3k WU dependent. I haven't OC'd it because quite frankly, it's a poor OC'er and the stock cooler is both impotent and loud. It also drags my 955 down about 1k PPD. ~5.5k @ stock clocks w/o the 560 Ti, ~4.5k with the card.

I need to get a bootable linux USB drive set up... Also need to put my 1055T in lol.

The 560 Ti will draw less watts for the same PPD as the 460. I get around 13,700 ppd on my 560 Ti (see my sig).

560 uses a bit less power, but costs 2x as much so...

For PPW folding the 560 Ti is king of the hill (and the more efficient a card is at folding the more it will pay off in the long run, as most of us are full time folders). : http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2011/04/26/best-graphics-card-for-folding/5

The GTX 460 768MB proved to be a great buy in our last folding roundup. It's certainly cost-efficient, second only to the GTS 450 1GB, but it's a long way behind the GTX 560 Ti 1GB in terms of power efficiency when folding. The latter is also noticeably faster in games and very overclockable. What's more, as most GTX 560 Ti 1GBs come equipped with third party coolers, they run at similar temperatures to the GTX 460 768MB too
