Multi-core HP workstation or a shared cluster of high performance computers?

I am considering to buy a 16-core HP Z820 workstation with a Quadro 5000 card. As there are other users who need high performance computers, he wonders if it is better for the department to buy a cluster of high performance machines for people to share. Any opinion on this?

 

My impression is that it is better to do it on a standalone workstation than on a shared, cluster of high performance computers. Once the cluster is available, many users will want to gain access. Then, the machines won't be high performance anymore. Any reason to opt for the standalone HP Z820 workstation besides this?
