Chris, Pretty much any of the Dell Precision workstations will work. RAID drives, good processor, 2GB or more of RAM in my opinion. The speed of the drives is important too, so go with the 10,000 rpm or 15,000 rpm. We are an all-Dell shop as well, so I have gotten pretty familiar with the product lines, so if you have any questions fire me an email jwilhelm AT marketmodels DOT com.
