New Xeon Six Core system Recomendations

Hi guys – I’m looking at a new system for PP/AE CS6.  I’m working with a budget of around $1000 for the moment.  I found the following system for just over $900. I’d prefer not to build a system and would like to know you’re thoughts/advice on this:


Dell T3600


  • Processor: Intel Xeon Six Core E5-1650 Processor (3.2GHz,12M, Turbo+)
  • Genuine Windows 7 Professional
  • Dell Outlet Precision Fixed Workstation T3600, 635W Tower
  • 250GB, 7200 RPM 3.5 inch SATA 6Gb/s Hard Drive
  • 500GB, 7200 RPM 3.5 inch SATA 6Gb/s Hard Drive
  • 4GB, DDR3 RDIMM Memory, 1333MHz, ECC (2 x 2GB DIMMs)
  • 8X DVD +/- RW Optical Drive
  • 1 GB NVIDIA Quadro 2000,Dual Monitor,2DP and 1DVI



I would be buying 16GB of ram to add on my own for about $90.  I’ll also be buying an external raid in the following weeks for storage.  This is just a base system to get me started.  Thoughts?
