Assumption: you are allowing internal users to only access 30 external websites.

without knowing what type of equipment you have, here are some suggestions:
Cisco ASA can do identity based firewall blocking using FQDN
websense, and other products like it, are built for just this purpose
block DNS to the internet and force users to use internal DNS. only resolve for the sites you want.

Flexible connectivity for any environment

The KE6900 series can extend and deploy computers with high definition displays across multiple stations in a variety of applications that suit any environment. Expand computer use to stations across multiple rooms with dynamic access.

Draytek 2830, is the websense product good? Happy to spend if it does the job.

your router can do this: "blocking specific web sites with whitelists or blacklists"

but if you want to buy something:
CDW

you could also look at baracuda networks
