ZTEX FPGA Boards with USB and Open Source SDK

Submitted this to /r/BitcoinMining and despite messaging the mod, it was never Approved. Asking here: With cheap electricity and rising BTC to USD values, are FPGAs still worth it?

Since the original was posted 8 days ago, the prices are way outta date.
I saw a sale of an FPGA on bitmit:
https://www.bitmit.net/en/item/19307-x6500-bitcoin-miners-working-100-400mh-s-for-less-than-20w#
I'm ignoring the one on eBay at the moment (it's ending in 3 hours anyway).
Basically, if your electricity ranged from 0.06-0.09/kwh (and got cheaper the more you used), would an x6500 be worth it at ~$229USD? Or is 400MH/s so low that you won't hit anything?
Side question: if you don't join a pool, are you still guaranteed to eventually mine a block, or will your chances go down so much that you'd just be burning electricity? Is it better to get a quad or so and make your own "pool" that way, or do they all work together to form one super-unit?
(I assume buying sooner is better as the value of BTC goes up, so will the difficulty)

Ports for the Ztex 1.15y and Cairnsmore CM1 quad boards are available in the experimental folder. Both achieve around 60kHash/sec (total for all four FPGA devices) using a single core and 16 threads (identical to the current ICARUS-LX150 code). BFGMiner is a modular ASIC, FPGA, GPU and CPU miner written in C, cross platform for Linux, Mac, and Windows including support for OpenWrt-capable routers. A field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is an integrated circuit designed to be configured by the customer or designer after manufacturing—hence "field-programmable". The FPGA configuration is generally specified using a hardware description language (HDL), similar to that used for an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) (circuit diagrams were previously used to specify the
