Anyone know the best cpu offered for the Dell Precision T3500?

I've been thinking of upgrading to a used Precision T3500. I've looked on wikipedia and pdf's and saw that it comes with either a Xeon 3500, 5500 or 5600 series. Which series is the best one?

I'm assuming the 5600 series is the best one. And if so, anyone know which cpu in this series is the best one offered for this particular system?

 Thanks

Support may also depend on which motherboard there are T3500's on ebay that say X5675 processor.

Antivirus software should be removed BEFORE Trying to update bios.

Bios updates should ONLY come from DELL.

Some bios updates require an earlier version.  You should go up to A17 before changing anything.
