Use the search feature and you will find enough information to answer your question and formulate a plan to find your "good bid". There was also a good thread started today on PPC
Also, here is a link to the PPC threads:

What Liquidate said. Read first, then test using lower bids, keywords and ads that are relevant to each other, quality landing pages etc etc. Please do yourself a favor and really DO your homework before you start - it'll save your yarbels!

Like any advertising program, PPC campaigns require a lot of research and market testing. Don't let the ease of getting into PPC fool you into thinking it's easy to manage. I learned from the School of Hard Knocks that PPC isn't something you passively manage. I would hope that you would not take a government position on the issue (i.e., if you throw enough money at it, it's sure to work...), but take some time to really evaluate how you want to drive traffic to your site, and what you're going to do with that traffic once they've arrived. PPC does nothing for you if you can't convert your traffic.
This thread has some interesting things to say about PPC.

Here is a few checklist items to do BEFORE you set your account live. If you're not real familiar with the Adwords process, start here and open up your account over time.
1) Set up Google Analytics. Must have.
2) Keep your keywords to 3 terms and higher. These are called long-tail terms. Traffic is less, but ROI is higher.
3) Set your bids to no more than $.15. You won't get a top ranking with this, but it will yield some traffic. And if you have a good long tail list you might even get position 1. Analytics will help you figure out what is working and what isn't. As you find words that work, bid them up (and remove position preference).
4) Set position preference to 3+. The top two will drain your account unless you have some history to backup your decision to go for the top. 3+ is better ROI, and that's what you want when you are spending money to make money. If you go with very general words, set this to 4+.
5) Set a daily budget. This is your fall safe. If you set it to $100, $50 or even $20 a day, you will know exactly how much you are willing to lose. It's like going to a casino and leaving your ATM card at home. You can only lose what is in your pocket.
Basically, jump in the shallow end... or at least be able to see the bottom. Then learn to swim. Then use the 30ft platform.

all helpful replies, very insightful, esp. nLoBushwack post.
do you guys think this solid advice also applies beyond adwords & overture? would you tweak/modify for others? if so, how/what/which other ppcs seem to work well, etc?...
<still learning>some of this stuff sucks
