Default Looking to buy a PT12HD system from scratch, don't know where to start

Ultimately, looking to buy a new computer and run pro tools 12 HD on it.

Would one of the new mac pro's be a good choice?
What additional hardware would I need to buy to run Pro tools 12 HD?

Thanks in advance for any help!!

You will save a ton by piecing a system together separately.

HDN - 800 all day on eBay.

Omni - 750 all day on eBay

PTHD 11 - 1k on eBay and elsewhere

Upgrade to PTHD 12 600

People will tell you, that you can't buy PTHD 11 used without hardware that is transferable, and that is simply not true. I bought mine last summer, and mine is fully transferable.
