This weekend I need to build a mini computer lab with 5-6 PCs. The purpose is for a small computer class that will be taking place. They're mostly going to be doing office and daily kind of stuff, so nothing high performance. However, I hope it will last at least for 2 more years.
I already have some parts for 2 PCs, one is a P4 3.0 and another is Celeron 2.4GHz, both socket 478.
For the other 4 PCs, I'm wondering if I should buy individual parts and put it all together or get workstations like those Dell Optiplex with P4s.
To put things into perspective, I am not currently in the US. I'm in South America and prices here are ridiculously.
Another really important thing is that I need to share an internet connection between a total of 8 PCs at this place. Right now I only have a crappy wireless router, should I get another one? Or go with a switch or hub? I'm not experienced in this matter.
