Everything I've read on the subject advises anyone serious about gaining mass to always lift prior to cardio due to the fact that cardio will deplete your glycogen storage, not giving you the balls-to-the-wall, 200% focus and energy required to pack on serious muscle.
EDIT: I'm unsure how long it takes for glycogen stores to fill back up (I assume a few meals), but I'd always lift first. Cardio can kick some serious ass and that split after a day of work and hard cardio 12 hours earlier...well.
