The "optimum" choke is calculated to have continuous current through it. If I remember correctly, it decreases the output voltage by 10%. It isn't as simple as calculating an RC circuit. I have never actually used that setup. That's why I can't remember the numbers. Nobody does it that way now because capacitors are so much cheaper than inductors and they don't "cost" any voltage.
