Subject: CCL:Help. Cluster or multiprocessor PC?

In our lab, we are trying to start some theoretical calculations about
reactivity (mainly the location of transition states) of organic and
organometallic molecules. We intend to use programs as Gaussian and/or
GAMESS, and only two or three people are going to submit their jobs to the
machine. The problem we face is what kind of machine to buy. Whith a budget
of about 1000 USD we were thinking about a four processor PC, but some told
us that maybe a small cluster would be better.
I would really thank any piece of advice on the subject.

Thank you,
