Which is a better processor for running Revit MEP, Xeon or the i7?  I use Revit MEP and when you have all the disciplines on (mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, structural) when coordinating, it is VERY SLOW.  I currently have a HP Workstation with a 1.6GHz Xeon processor, dual core, 4GB RAM and a 1GB ATI FirePro 4800 Graphics Card.

I was talking to my friends about this issue also. The i7 will give you the best bang for your buck. But if you have the money to burn I'll go with the Dual Xeon Dual Core, Dell Precision line. I haven't touch the MEP aspect but will soon, but if it's just modeling, then the core speed is important.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong. 

I'm on the same boat as you choosing which processor is best.
