Silhouette hardware suggestions

Have any of you had luck speeding up things like tracking and render out?

I’m trying to decide between a fast i7, or a slower Xeon with twice the cores, as well as a GPU for 4K DPX/EXR with a lot of tracking and paint.

The fastest CPU/GPU combination is always best. Roto and Paint will benefit from a fast CPU, while the majority of nodes as well as the Mocha tracker will benefit from a good GPU. A fast SSD will be helpful for image I/O especially those EXR files which are not the fastest when loading and saving.
