Database size is really the main issue to determine. Obviously if you go
with standard, you'll need to limit mailbox size accordingly to avoid
maxing out the database. I supported 200+ users on Exchange 5.5 standard
for some years without many problems; you just have to keep the "power
users" under control. It really comes down to how they use email; if
they have a lot of heavy email users who send and receive a lot of
attachments, enterprise version might make sense.

 I am trying to find information about the system requirements for
Exchange 2003 if you have X amount of Users. 

We have a customer that would like a Exchange system for 160 users. I am
not sure if Standard will work or if they will need the Enterprise
edition. I am aware of the 16Gb store limit for standard edition. 

Just wondered if there is a formula for the different versions.
