Hardware for OpenFOAM Cluster

I here have a Cluster with about 40 Nodes, more then the half of the nodes are Core 2 Duos, there are ~ 10 nodes with i7, for OpenFOAM CFD.
For space, administration, temperature and energy reasons, we are planning to get some new hardware.
Budget is approx. 16.000 $
I have no idea what will work best, I first thought 2 Machines with 2x 16Core Opteron would work best, but then i read, that Xeons (even with less cores) will compute faster.
What's about a Dell PowerEdge R810 Server? It has 4 CPU Sockets, for example 4x E7-4870 ?
Which Setup would work best for OpenFOAM - Where are the Bottlenecks? Where do i have to look at regarding CPU and RAM?

TotalSim can provide Hardware. We use OpenFOAM as our solver so we have worked our own recipe to remove the bottle necks. Visit our website if you want to know more or give us a call and we can talk you through what we would do.
