Scale up or out?

Hey all,

Question about EC2 (or scale in general): i'm building a decent cluster, to handle 15-20k inserts/s and 5-10k gets per second.  (for a rough idea of what I'm doing).  I've been playing with a 15-node cluster of m2.xlarge systems, but I am wondering what is better: more small systems or less larger systems?  

Any recommendations/hints/tricks would be a huge help!
