When doing VS, people may pick perhaps the top 0.01-0.1% of the results.
Depending on the target and the binding site, my wild guess is that
this selection would put the binding energy cutoff in the -8 to -20
kcal/mol. So -8 kcal/mol is the answer to your question, as I
understood it. That said, -8 kcal/mol may well be totally unpromising
in most cases.
P.S. Please use descriptive subject lines in the future.
