If your using X it might be easier to get old PCs and use them as the 
terminals. They don't have to be fast, only the computer dealing with the X 
clients needs to be reasonable.

As for CPU usage, general console usage needs hardly any CPU. I would think if 
your not using X you would be limited by how many keyboard/monitors... you 
could connect not CPU.
