One of the projects i like is NFS@Home. It doesn't give too many points (65 pts with a 16e WU, and slightly less with the 14a and 15a) but it validates instantly. One warning though, the 16a WU's ear 1-2 GB of RAM per thread, so you'd need 8 GB to run in all 4 cores.
CPU projects are never known to give lots of points. Just pick one which you feel more comfortable with, or piques your interest.
That 6950 is where the points are at. Milkyway@Home likes AMD hardware, so does POEM@Home.

CPU projects are the least profitable, but are the most interesting and varied. Point in case, WCG

I concur. Those extra 20k points may be the difference between one rank and the next. As we all say, every bit helps.
