Default Tips for buying used HP workstation

Hi Windows users! I'd like to buy a used HP Workstation that i can use with Windows 10, HD12 and 1 HDX card. I currently have a Mac Pro 5,1 with a 3.3Ghz 6-Core Xeon. The PC should be in a similar power range.
Any suggestions what HP Z model to look for on the used market?
Or should i rather build myself a new i7/X99 workstation?
Thanks!

I have a go z800 I might be willing to sell. Currently it has an HDN card in it. It's dual 3.09 Ghz 6 core, so 12 cores. I also have a Isis compatible mix card, sata 3 and usb 3 card, FireWire 800/400 card and nvidia quadro 1800 card. It s running Windows 7 64 at the moment. Really runs pro tools well.
