It is a little difficult to say since you haven't told us
what the clients are doing. However, as a datapoint, I served
30 Windows PC's (part of the network) doing office things
and ran a proxy server for 150 computers (all of the network)
on a 400 Mhz PIII Dell 2450 with 128 Mb of RAM and FreeBSD 3.5.
CPU time rarely climbed above 15% and most of that seemed to
be around the print spooling.
Spend your money on something else - like a good backup system
(or a trip to the Bahamas).
