As stated before why not set up a central server and gigabit LAN the user nodes.
I am sure for the individual stations (depends on the total users) you could construct them far cheaper.
CPU AMD ATHLON64 3700+ Sandiego USD$ 233.00...here
GPU and MOTHERBOARD combo eVGA 7800GT with nf4 SLI motherboard USD$359.00..here
RAM G.SKILL 2 x 1Gb F13200PHU2-2GBZX..USD$194.00..here
PSU SUNBEAM NUUO SUNNU550-US-SV 550W SLi USD$83.50..here
CASE COOLERMASTER CENTURION5 black USD$45.00..here
This is a total off USD$914.50 and is just an example. for arguments sake.
plus keyboard and mouse and monitor(go for large CRT)
