2 intel xeon e5-2650 vs i7-4790k

I'm currently trying to modify my existing PC, I'm in need of more processing power for 3d software (Rhino 3d and Maya) my PC currently lags a ton when there's heavy info involved (just panning around my models) which makes it almost impossible to work. I haven't completely caved on the idea of just building a new PC, I want to see if I can modify it and if it'd be worth it.

Would 2 intel xeon e5-2620 processors work a lot better than my current i7-4790k? I'm not super familiar with how dual processors function, do they work individually first and then at the same time when needed?

GPU: gtx 750ti RAM: HyperX FURY 24GB 240-Pin DDR3 1600

I appreciate your opinions and help in advance!

Cheers, Erick

4 cores and 8 threads vs 12 cores and 24 threads. Theoretically it should be 3 times smoother but it depends if Rhino 3D and Maya are optimised for dual CPUS.

That's what i'm thinking but I don't want to make any expensive assumptions.

How much are you buying the 2620s and its mobo for?

Roughly looking at $500 - $550.
