Leaning towards the Precision for more threads for my rendering (mine are CPU based)

Yep, the more cores you have, the faster you can render. And the price is nearly identical, so that would be my choice.

Well we ordered the Precision desktops. I'll report back on how well they perform once we get them in and setup.
