ES hardware setup advice


I know that the easy response for the following would be to benchmark be
myself to see what best fit my workload; however, what I ask for is to help
make a kind of pros/cons list for two different setup, and for which kind
of workload one or the other would be more adapted.

The first setup is the following (setup1):

- 2 x Intel Xeon E5-2630v2
- 64GB ram
- 3 x 600GB SSD (raid0)
- 10Gb nic

The second (setup2):
- 1 x Intel Xeon E5-1620v2
- 32GB ram
- 2 x 480GB SSD (raid0)
- 1Gb nic

Given these two setups, and the fact that the first one cost 3 times the
second one; for which kind of workload would fewer setup1 node would be
more performant than a higher number of setup2 nodes ?

Thx in advance for you advices/ideas.
