I would definitely look for dual processor 8 or 12 core machine and upgrade the processors to 3.46 which is the highest you can get for the 5,1. Also consider putting an SSD boot drive on the PCI bus.
Hey offthewall, I have nearly the exact same setup as you (bar the 12-core and PCIe boot drive, although that's in the post!) are you not getting any GUI lag on clips when editing? I'm having real trouble, very laggy compared to 11.2.2 HD on 10.9.4.
