I would love to put a rig together and I have about $400 that I am going to spend on absolutely and want it to go to a good cause.

I am going to cannabilize my E4300, cooler, and probably motherboard for the cause as well as an HDD so all I really need recommendations on is what GPU's to buy!!

EDIT> I can also cannabilize some ram as well

A couple 96sp 9600gso's would probably be your best bet. A 9800gx2 would be nice if you can find a good price on one.

there are also some good deals on the egg for 9800 GTs which churn out about 5.5k ppd with a nice shader overclock...

That's a great card for folding. It should get you around 6000 PPD.
