Mining software • BTCMiner v1.3.0 - Bitcoin Miner for ZTEX FPGA boards

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)

BTCMiner - Bitcoin Miner for ZTEX FPGA Boards. BTCMiner is an Open Source Bitcoin Miner for ZTEX USB-FPGA-Modules 1.15b and 1.15d and USB-FPGA-Modules 1.15x.The latter variant is optimized for cryptographic computations such as Bitcoin Mining and allows to build up FPGA clusters using standard components (USB cables and USB hubs). ZTEX FPGA Boards with Open Source SDK. ZTEX develops and sells FPGA Boards. Our products are mainly designed for prototyping and small series development but may also be used as evaluation or development kit. A powerful Open Source SDK is available for our products. By using a firmware with Default Interface in combination with a Device Server it is even possible to access our FPGA board ... USB-FPGA Module 1.15y with installed heat sinks. The heat sinks are delivered with the board. This FPGA Board contains four Spartan 6 LX150 (XC6SLX150) FPGA and is suitable for cryptographic computations such as Bitcoin Mining. BTCMiner - A bitcoin miner for Ztex FPGA-boards written in Java - gr0bi42/BTCMiner 2. FPGA. As most people are well aware of, FPGA stands for Field-Programmable Gate Array. In the bitcoin world, these devices were quite popular among miners once GPU mining became far too ...
