Are there any alt coins that would be viable to mine with CPU ?

I can't imagine anything being viable to mine with CPU nowadays...

If you dont have free electricity it woun't be profitable to mine with the CPU.

A resonably modern AMD GPU can still make profits mining altcoins thou, a 5850 for example, underclocked and undervolted is still profitable on the second biggest coin LTC and even more so on other smaller coins, you can compare profitabillity at

an 5850 at 282Mhz/s, 92 watt and relatively high cost per kw/h in this example:
Fastcoin (FST) seems to be the most profitable today, generating 3 times as much USD as if one would mine btc instead, but that changes from day to day so have a look there.
