Want computer solution for Ansys Fluent

Hello, I'm gonna post and ask the question as spending the last 10 min with the search bar/google hasn't got me an answer that's truly answers my problem.
Right now, I'm running a i5-660, 8GB ram to do some Ansys Fluent CFD. I notice huge lag when I'm done a CFD calculation and go looking at flow pathlines and flow vectors in the "Graphics & Animation". It lags when it loads the graphical display, and when I try to interact with it in terms of moving, rotating, and zooming.
Here's a video demonstrating my issue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Hc1g1OVFno
When I used Fraps to capture this, CPU would jump around between 0-30%, and appears to be dependent on merely mouse movements.
I'm looking for a better computer solution that is under <$1000, but am really looking for the best value (Price-Performance Ratio). At first, looked at consumer PC, and then at server computers (Dell Poweredge, HP Proliant, and similar servers)
So far, I'm attracted to the idea of this HP Proliant DL160, listed on eBay for merely $450. That includes x2 Xeon L5639 and 48GB DDR3.
My thoughts on this:
The questions I have:
