We used to have a P3-550 256MB machine serving about that many
developers (using linux raid on 2 IDE disks). While performance was
certainly adequate and nobody had a complaint, things like 'svn log' or
'svn ls' really do speed up with a faster system.

Xeon 3ghz, SCSI 320 RAID. This machine made svn much faster, despite
the performance hit from switching from EXT3 to NTFS. (E.g. 'svn log -v'
would take 5s instead of ~40s).

Think of it this way: When you drive a Corolla it works fine and you
get where you want to go without complaint. However, after you drive a
BMW 5-series sedan you won't want to go back to the Corolla.
