So your example of 50 VM hosts that there is no way you could do this isn't true, running desktop VMs at that level of density isn't even cutting edge and can be done on a modest dual-socket system, probably worth around $10-15k whereas 78 $500 desktops would be almost $40k.
In fact from a security perspective running desktops as virtual machines has some other benefits too in that may systems are run from snapshots off a central, read-only system image so infected machines can be easily and completely rolled back to a known good state.
