Allow users to do updates on there PC

I need to be able to allow users to do updates on there workstations & install software, I don't in anyway want to give them admin rights.
I'm thinking of a GPO that will give them power user rights, but I'm concern that it may be more permissions then what they need to just be able to do update and install software as needed. As it is the software will only be allowed to be installed if it's sign my MS.
Question,

In a GPO what would be the correct way of applying it, as in computers or users, where in the GPO do I do the editing ect....

Thanks

Ideally, it would be beneficial to everyone and more secure if you went the SCCM or any package distribution route. Access to the package can be controlled by AD.
If MS isn't the way you want to go, you have some options: http://www.golekupo.net/2011/07/system-center-configuration-manager-or.html

Your idea regarding SCCM is a good one, except that it is $$$$ prohibited.
Any ideas alone the GPO?

Now if you could help me out with my other question I posted?

I need to be able to allow user to do update much in the same mange, hopefully using a GPO,but the updates would be for software install on the workstation such as java, flash, iTunes, adobe etc....
