If I were going to start from scratch today knowing what I know now I would go with:

then get 3 or 4 of

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=172018&CatId=3669

It gives an 1MH/s to US$1 or better ratio with 4 cards, the possibility of running 3 cards with 1 slot space between them for cooler operation, or running 4 cards next to each other and the expandability to run better cards later.
