Building a small Cluster

Im going to build a small render farm / cluster using episode pro. Should I buy a couple of Mac mini servers with i7 quad core or a couple of used macpro towers from eBay? I'm doin mostly prores to x.264 HD stuff.

If you are going with Episode Pro, which is limited to 2 simultaneous encodes at a time, I think the minis will be a good fit. 2 simultaneous H.264 encodes should saturate the cores but not overly. I have the same processor in my MBP with 8gig of RAM.
