You may take this one... 4.0GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 4.4GHz
Unfortunately itīs more money but an i7 Quad Core a crucial thing as to a flawless
PT11 performance.

This is where you can save a lot and itīs ridiculously easy to replace the Ram yourself.
Have a look at the video.

Why not using only 1 SSD for the audio drive only, 7200rpms for the back up drives.
These would be quite affordable ones with 1 TB:

(this is a very new one, the 850 series really great, even a big step up from the 840s)
Just as a suggestion.

As to the 003 I hope for you that you will get it to work properly with all the latest stuff like
Yosemite and PT11. There were many users who experienced serious issues with Mavericks
and PT11 (although they used the official Mavericks driver available from Avid).
Anyway Avid have released another Yosemite ready driver for the 003.

As to the Thunderbolt-to-FW-adapter thereīs no other way to connect it actually and there
have been people have used it successfully this way. Others had general problems with the
003 with Mavericks /Yosemite and PT11 as well as problems with the connection.

You definitely will have to try it out to see how it will behave with your specific system.

Wishing you the best of success with your new gear,

cheers,

VRW
