to run so many clients, processor doesn't matter so much, its memory you want so you want to factor at least 1gb per client so thats 18gb+. Next to the processor Memory is the next most expensive component.Looking for something I could build that would run 18+ clients for less than $500. Even a prebuilt would work! Can anybody help?

So start looking at an AMD Ryzen with at least 32gb of memory and price in any video card at least $75+, a 500gb SSD and you should be good to go. I should think you should be able to build a system around those specs for under $500.
Personally thou i prefer Intel I5-I7 processors which would bump your price up.
i recently put an i5 system together for under 500UK pounds although i only used a 240gb SSD as i already had a couple of 2tb standard hard drives to use in it.
note above not counting monitor
64gbs is really a waste. I built a system in augustmy last build my ram cost me 1000 us, but I got myself 64g of ram though
mind posting the other parts? im looking at doing the same but the cpu alone is $27064gbs is really a waste. I built a system in august
AMD RX 580
I just built a new system last night same CPU/gpu. I spent $450 at microcenter for the CPU,MB,PSU,HD,Case. I bought the GPU on ebay for $120. used half the ram from the other system that wasn't being used anyway. Although Ram is CHEAP right now its $159 on newegg for 32 gbs of DDR4 no matter what speed you want 3000,2400,2633 its all the same price right now. So for maybe $750 you can build a system that can run 36-42 toons.
ya ill just copy and paste the order from microcenter website.mind posting the other parts? im looking at doing the same but the cpu alone is $270
haha ya thats what my other system has. should of just went with the $70 cheap ass matx oneGIGABYTE X470 AORUS Gaming 7 WIFI (AMD Ryzen AM4/ X470/ Intel Wave 2 WIFI/ M.2) Motherboard is what my motherboard is right now

You can get 32 gbs of ram on newegg right now for $159 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820232660
I bought the AMD RX 580 on ebay for $120 but you can get one brand new from microcenter for $169 right now https://www.microcenter.com/product/479525/red-dragon-radeon-rx-580-dual-fan-8gb-gddr5-pcie-video-card
Thats what $803 ? if you buy the GPU brand new? I didnt have to buy ram so i only spent $600 and im boxing 36 toons on it right now and could probably load one more group. My other system is setup the same but has a way better motherboard and case and H110I liquid cooler. I went alittle too far on that one
The best thing about the case is you can stack them ontop of each other to save space. Right now my other 2 desktops are using HUGE ass cases that are just absurd. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147158&Description=Thor case&cm_re=Thor_case-_-11-147-158-_-Product
