I cut acrylic sheet for sump baffles on a standard table saw blade. IIRC it was only 3/16" or 1/4" acrylic and I got a pretty rough cut. It worked for baffles but probably not what you are looking for on an overflow.

I have also cut it with a standard hand saw. Mixed results with that. A lot of elbow grease, a lot of binding, and a fair amount of cracking. Table saw went a lot smoother.

I purchased a holesaw from Craftics (www.craftics.com). Very fast shipping but I see their table saw blades start at $56 and go waaaayy up from there.
