Would dual xeon X5670's be much better in gaming than a i7-2600?

Would it be worth spending the money on a old dell workstation with dual X5670 xeons for gaming or should I just stick with the i7-2600?

There are really no benefits to any dual CPU configurations for gaming because there are no games optimized to take advantage of dual CPUs or even use them.

Plus, that Xeon CPU architecture is older even than your Sandy bridge i7, so I'd stick with what you have or get something much newer.

That Westmere Xeon configuration would actually be a step backwards.

You already have an i7-2600? No, not worth it. The Sandy Bridge i7-2600 will have faster single-core speed and has enough multi-core capability for most gaming. It would likely be faster gaming than 2x X5670 that can't be overclocked.
