Windows 7: Which workstation for CAD/Revit

Windows 7 Enterprise
Which workstation for CAD/Revit


Not sure if this is the right section to put this in - please move and advise if not.

Ok, budget 1500-1600 (VAT can be added on top).

Current PC is a Dell T5610 with a single Xeon E5-2609v2 CPU, 16GB RAM, SSD and Quadro K2000.

We are going to give the current workstation for another 2D only user, hence the need for a Revit 3D capable setup.

I'm getting conflicting whether Revit needs a beefy CPU/RAM or beefy GPU.

Dont want to buy the wrong system.
