We are looking at new workstations. The Dell T5400 specifically. There is an option for dual graphics cards. I've heard that two lessor cards will sometimes perform better than one high end card. For example: dual FX1700's is supposedly much faster than one FX4600. Does anyone have any experience with this?

We are also wondering if we will see any marked improvements if we get 16 GB of RAM vs 8 GB. What are most people running these days? Large assemblies and some animations are fueling our need for new workstations.
