Is it a good time to buy a 16-cores Xeon workstation?

They've been available for about a month.

CPU's by themselves are out and a few vendors are selling systems with them. A lot of the big name companies aren't selling systems with the higher-end new xeons yet (not listed online anyway) or maybe if you give them or call they might have them available.

Yeah, still no 20-cores for the Z820. Ah well...

Here you go.

Stock configurations of Z820 easily found on HP website with Ivy Bridge Xeons

Z820 Configurator that allows you to choose any E5 Sandy or Ivy Xeon CPU

Well well well... that's amazing!

However the configure link is not loading. Website must be down or busy. I'll check it out a bit later.

I dont want to make a mistake when choosing and will report my configuration here to ask advices. Budget should be around 10-12000$. A gamer card should be good enough as I will use C4D and Lightwave.
