personally, i find it cheaper and easier to just go with the Borg ones (they're the toughest enemies at max level anyway, you'll need all the help you can get ). plus, the boost to general accuracy isn't really worth the cost, on anything (you hit most of the time anyway)
Personally I use the MK XIIs..

Fun Fact: Uncommon MK XII Beam Array [CrtH] are more or less identical to a crafted MK XI Beam Array [Dmg] x2 [CrtH] - And its usually cheaper as well.. Rare MK XIIs beat any other weapon in the game, and they are the only truely rare item in the game. Therefore theyre usually priced accordingly. (I got lucky and bought 3 rare MK XII weapons for 3.5, 3.75 and 4.5 mil)
