my office is getting some new dell's that are mostly used for autocad and traffic modeling programs.
They were originally looking at dimension systems, but I have them looking at their precision workstation line instead.
Couple questions here...

We can either get a Pentium Dual Core, or I believe we can spend less and get a P4 at a higher clock rate. Any idea which is a better way to go?

One big difference between the two systems is the video card options. The precisions have very expensive Quadro FX cards and we would be getting the 540 model, with 128 mb. With the dimension we would have gotten 256mb geforce cards. Is this entry level quadro card better than the geforce, even with less memory?
