You need to get an additional PCIe card for USB 3.0, which it doesn't seem to have according to the pictures. I hope you understand that the seller is doing false claims.
That machine is definitely better than your 2012 MBP. And if you have lots of "old" port peripherals, it's the way to go.
I have a 2009 12-core myself that I hacked the crap out of, and it's a beautiful and powerful machine running Mojave and the latest Logic.
I also put an SSD on the second DVD bay for the system drive and I have 4 extra HD bays. Can't beat that.
I was avoiding anything earlier than 2010, but with that information, will consider 2009 as well. This guy says the year of this machine is 2012, and it looks super nice, except for being only 6 cores.
