Hey, There are Quite a few problems with this build. Here's what I came up with " http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1hYx5 " You didn't say what currency you use, so I just made it USA.

No they aren't.

They are a hidden gem in the Intel lineup. Pretty much a 3770 for a i5 price. I actually own that CPU for a Civil 3D machine.

purpletalon 1 point 68 months ago

well then you are in a fantasy, because that is incorrect.

they are expensive, poor gaming cpu's and they were even designed with servers in mind.

please use them for what intel specified tehy are to be used for.

change that xeon to a i5 4670k and your golden.

you would also have to change your mobo for that too...

That xeon is Actually LGA1155, So it should be fine.

You guys do realize that you would have to overclock a 3570k to 4.4 to match the multitasking speed of the e3-1230 v2. Also no need to overclock for gaming and less heat in a small area.

Ya, most of us know this stuff, It's just that the 3570k will probably last longer, If you want you could still get the Xeon, But i fixed a few other problems in your build. :)
