I'm looking for some style for throwing, nothing fancy just what gets the job done. Which one works better for "street effectiveness" Judo or Aikido, or some other style I don't know about?

i cannot believe that, after reading these forums, you are considering aikido. i can tell you this much- after only a couple of months of judo I can throw my non judo friends around like rag dolls and control them with impunity on the ground. judo is cheap, the whole system is based around fighting someone who is resisting, and also has groundwork in case you find a street that doesnt have broken glass on it.

If you're looking for the easy and fast way go to judo or wrestling
If you're looking for the complicated way that will take longer to learn go to aikido, but to be truthful there's overlap between judo and aikido, but the big difference being that aikido doesn't have competition or full-resistance training for mudansha (non black belts)

another difference, in judo you throw to the ground in front of you so that you can gain positional dominance on the ground where ne waza (ground fighting techniques) starts
aikido throws people away from you so that you can get away and aikido doesn't have a ground game
For intance, in judo when I perform a hip throw I will hang on to their arm and slam them on the ground at my feet ---- and in aikido when I perform a hip throw I will let go of their arm and throw them horizontally toward the direction they were going so they can roll out of it

Check my throws out in the throwdown section. I did Judo for a long time. It builds a reactionary sense of balance and how to take it from your opponent.
Judo is a great foundation for throws and MA in general.

Judo - is the easiest to find and cheap to train, just look past the grip on the gi for street applications
Greco - harder to find but good for learning how to control somones upperbody
