I would say that going IP phones from the start might be easier and
cheaper in the long run. The analogue extension cards end up costing a
lot I think, and you are limited by the PCI slots as to how many
extensions you can have.
Grandstream phones work and are around E70.

Check out http://www.voip-info.org/ - it has a section on scaling (as
well as many other * tips). Any modern desktop spec machine should be
plenty to handle 20 or so extensions.
