Hey Dudes,

Just wondering, for my build. Which CPU, in your opinion will be best. I'm not planning to overclock or anything.

The Xeon E3-1225 V2
Or the i7 3770

I'm open to suggestions.

It's going to be used for a lot of gaming, occasional video rendering and the usual document typing, music playing, video watching, website programming and internet browsing...

Thanks!

Well for a start, I have a Sabertooth Z77 board, that supports a Xeon. The Xeon is far more cheaper from my supplier than a 3770

It does as hyper threading it just has a slightly lower frequency.

I'm planning to upgrade my i3 2100 to a Xeon E3-1230 V2 as it is pretty much the i7 3770 without the graphical die. I can get the Xeon E3-1230 V2 for around $10 more than an i5 3570k and since i'm not overclocking why would I choose an i5/i7 over the Xeon?
