Not just money-wise, but points wise they are almost 2 for 1 as well.

Soooo.... personally, I'd say terminators are worth the points vs GK in power armor. You get a heck of a lot of advantages. If you are in a high-point game, terminators are very worth it, but in lower-point games usually more models becomes a lot more important.
ALL GK models are very nice. I do, however, think the terminator models are even better. I'd say a good total is probably 2 terminator boxes (enough for 10 terminators) then get GK in power armor unless you plan for huge battles or to try to go terminator heavy.
It depends on the size of the game, but usually 5 termies is enough cause you need space for stormies.
Henceforth no man shall set foot upon the world, and all around shall be set sentinals to ward away unwary spacecraft. We must accept that this place is lost to us forever, and is now the eternal habitation of abomination.

GK for 25 point is too expensive (unless used a fast attack). Go termies.
