    Xeon E3 Server/Workstation Now Available

    FelixUnderwood Level 2

      With all other components being equal, how would the new Xeon E3 Worksations compare to a 990X? Feel free to add HDDs, SSDs. the video card of your choice, and even the cabinet of your choice. I'm simply wondering how the two compare. I'm about to build another rig for lot's of layered PPro Sequences, including AE comps. Though I'm not wanting to throw money away, I was up until 3:30 last night, so I'm willing to shell $$ out for speed AND reliability/stability. So I'd like to start with the best possible processor. So, again, any opinions on the 990X vs. Xeon E3 Server/Workstation configuration? Main media will be HDV and AVCHD/Intra, but again, lots o' layers and AE Comps.
