[Erik Lindahl] "Price / performance I think the 6-core probably beats the 8-core but on the 8-core you have similar performance in most tasks and decent multithreaded tasks should be upwards 25% faster.

I'd say the 8-core is the current-gen sweet spot if you can afford it. Otherwise the 6-core. The D700 are a given to me as well as at least 32 GB of RAM (we went with 64)."

To me the ram, the SSD and the GPU's were clear. The tough decision was the cores.

To me, the decision wasn't between 8 or 12, it was between 6 or 8. In the end I went with the 8. It really is the sweet spot. So few programs can use 12 cores, and if they can't, it's the slowest in the bunch...
