No such thing as "best".
What is best for you may not be best for me. That is like saying what is the best car, while failing to mention that you have six children and live in a forest. An Aston Martin is not the best car for you.

200gb store for mailbox and 60gb for public folders is peanuts and with the cost of storage isn't even worth thinking about. You can have multiple databases in Exchange 2007, so you can easily split that data in to 50gb databases, which is well under the 150gb rough rule of thumb for database size.

Do you need to keep the data for regulatory reasons? I wouldn't consider PST files an archive solution either.

What do you exactly mean by Archiving ?
Do you want to limit the Mailbox size or DB size ? -
Mailbox database - If your looking for Small DB size try to break into Multiple Database (Standard has 5 including PF and Ent can have 50)
PF Monitoring - In toolbox you have the PF console for Administration.
