My overclocked GTX 260 will do 2 long run WUS in 24h. There are some WUs that will put it a few hours over, but that hasn't been happening that often. Something with similar capabilities should be relatively inexpensive at this point. Realistically, how much are you looking to spend?

Dont have an exact value how much money i wAnt spend. I must replace one of my cc1.1 card cos in last time they run short tonis very bad again (errors after 20hours and so) and stopped finally all my 24h cc11 cards for gpugrid. I have some 2xx cards now in ebay but dont want to buy an "expencive" 280 or 290 (have limited PSU possibilities too) when a 260 reaches my goal for min. one long unit per day too ;) the less money this goal cost the better , i dont have much of it :(

Well if you're going for inexpensive your best bet would probably be something like a GTX 460 or a GTX 550 Ti. The 550 Ti has less shaders but is clocked higher. I don't have performance benchmarks for these cards, maybe someone else can help with that. Both seem to be obtainable in the $120-$150 range.
