Best WebTest and Load tool

I am looking at different web test tools for testing a new app web we are creating. I have looked at both WebTest and Selenium and both look promising, but it looks like they are not really designed for load and performance tests. The web app I need to test will be an intranet application with perhaps 200 concurrent users, so I don't need a high-end test tool.

Would either WebTest or Selenium work for simple load tests to simulate about 200 concurrent users?

I am open to any suggestions for simple load testing and performance tools. Simplicity and ease of use are the most important factors. We are a small shop so I don't want some gigantic tool that will cost a lot of time and money to leverage.

I'd recommend looking at Grinder.
