24GB RAM
Decklink 4K Extreme
NVidia Quadro 4000 Graphics

1TB SSD (Media Files)

There have been problems repotzed of Dell BIOSes not working relianly with Decklink cards, so I would go with the Lenovo. If you use Flash templates I would install Windows 7 instead of 10. We are still investigating, what makes Flash templates freeze after a while, but it does happen more often under Win 10.
