Sorry for the late reply, I missed your email.

pachi scales extremely well with the number of cores on a single machine
but unfortunately
much less on multiple machines. See all details in
http://pasky.or.cz/go/pachi-tr.pdf
I have not looked at exact prices, but I guess that for the price of 30
Raspberry Pi you could
get at least one 12-core ~3GHz machine which would outperform the cluster
as a go engine.
To get highest ROI for a go engine, look at multi-core machines.
