Testing OpenFOAM parallel computing

I am new to OpenFOAM and am looking at hardware for testing it out. I am wondering if anybody has any guidance about the two different possibilities I was thinking of:
2 separate workstations (2x dual core) = total 8 cores connected by gigabit ethernet
1 single workstation (2x quad core) = total 8 cores
The separate machines are overall lower cost but would this truely show the parallel scalability (up to 8 cores) that is achievable?
The purpose of these machines are to check capabilities of OF as well as see how it scales in parallel.
