I recently built the following machines for about $2500:

-Single Opto 265 Processor
-Dual SATA drives
-Dual GB NIC

And they are each serving 25-50 clients quite comfortably. I do have the
home directories off-loaded to another machine (accessed via NFS on the
second GB interface) though, so you may want to go up to 10K RPM SATA
drives or SCSI if budget allows.
