I know SAN would be best but I'm figuring get 2 SAS drives and dedicate 1 for each virtual web server and that will be an improvement, then just use local SATA for the admin boxes.

SAS Drives would be a good start for now if your restricted with funds, just have plenty of RAM, and you may have to tweak your Resource Pools depending on how things go (with in the hypervisor) and how many network cards does each box have

What Operating systems are you using

if you are looking at new servers and would like something that is value for money but packs a punch

look at these

the guests will be running ubuntu server, the host will be ESXi 5 w 24GB.

i was only planning to have 3 NICs in each host, as long as it's not exceeding the total capacity of the card, does it matter much?

No it wont matter, Sometimes depending on the VM host setups i sometimes suggest ( if you can afford to ) depending on the amount of VMs your having is dedicate a Network card per VM or you can just pool them together and let the ESXi host handle the traffic

I don't think you will have any issues either way,
