What ping do you consider acceptable?

I'm interested in what ping range people consider acceptable when looking for servers. With players from different countries, not everyone is going to have the same experience, but what's the best compromise?

Personally, I don't mind anything up to 150ms, but I imagine this value would have to be much lower in PvP servers. What do you think?

Edit: And just to clarify, I'm talking about Minecraft servers.

I have pretty crappy internet due to being in a rural area of the UK with no cable coverage and restricted to ADSL via my phone line; I'm happy with anything under 200 really, but I'm a PvE survival player and builder, so a bit of lag from time to time is acceptable to me.

I mention that I have 1500 because I can still, from time to time, get 0 lag while playing. I have no idea what causes lag between a server and a player, but ping is not an accurate judge of it.

Wow. In my case it's is. I found out my router is dying that way so I had to shutdown my server on till I get a new one in about a week. Don't want any idiot contractions made that could "break" the server while I'm gone for at least a good week. Hopefully no more.

250-300 is acceptable for pvp. Anything above that i wouldn't recommend it. As far as building servers, as long as you can move and are not rubberbanding every few seconds your ping can be 1000.

Since i live in China and not many servers are hosted here and the "great" firewall of china(blocks youtube, facebook and twitter) while slowing the internet down a ton. I usually can stand my ping going over 800

50. Anything above and there's issues with the connection.

Not acceptable doesn't mean unplayable ofcourse. MC isn't really dependant on latency.

I'm trained to TF2's ping rating,

0-30 = Really close to the server, no way in hell you're going to lag
60-90= Acceptable range, No notable lag
100-150= Starting to notice lag
150+ Inoperable lag
