The 8 threads will be nice for my videos, and the architecture will be good enough for my games. I only have a 60 hertz monitor, 2500k and an E3 will get me 60 FPS.

Well i won't argue with you over your decision, its your choice, but there's no way to know before hand what a chip will do. If you like the xeon, and it works for you, get it. Just don't expect it to oc.

Welcome to the winning team.

Being different for the sole/singular purpose of being different isn't particularly beneficial to you. Especially when you starting compromising your build quality with inferior options because the public mass already appreciates the best of the best. I can understand wanting to be an individual and wanting to stand out from the crowd, but this is just petty and I think in someways completely superficial.

IMO, get a 2500k/2600k and be unique with your build on the other components like your case or paint job.

Take out some ram and you may be able to over clock higher. Some mb don't do well with all dimms populated.

With the Xeon you will not be able to overclock much at all. Would you really be happy with a 3.2 GHz Xeon when you could have a 4.7-5.0 GHz 2500K or 2600K for similar money? I realize it would be "different" to go with the Xeon setup, but that seems like buying a Lada because everyone else is driving around in more normal cars. In the end, you may be different, but you're still stuck with the Lada. And yes, people will think you are being different, but not necessarily in a good way.

Thread Starter 
The newer 2500/2600k overclocks have been trending down. 45 multi seems to be the norm. Even with 1 ghz overclock, is there really a real world performance boost? I don't think there is. With or without OC, I will still be getting 60FPS in all my games.

I can get a nice E3 a lot cheaper than a non K i7, but get more performance. Turn the turbo off, up the muti to whatever the turbo is and call it a day.

8 threads that will be way better then what I have now, and will smoke a bulldozer.

4.5 is easily achievable by most people with very slight voltage increases. With a little more, you can get 4.7 or 4.8 without much issue. The reason that a lot of people don't run them at 4.7 or above is because there isn't really a huge gain from those extra 100-200 MHz and you can get to 4.5 with a lower VCore like 1.3V (whereas you might need 1.4V for 4.7 or 4.8).

If you get the Xeon, one day you'll want to overclock it...and then you'll probably regret your decision to be "different" when you realize you can only OC it very, very slightly.

I like being different, but X58 is a lot different then SB. For overclocking you will want the regular i5/i7 desktop line, but I do applaud you for wanting to be different from the crowd.

May I recommend an FX-8150? Not many people have those I think.

Yeah, if you want to be different, just stick to being an AMD fan, get the FX-8150, and overclock that. It will run faster than that Xeon not overclocked. Or you could be a value minded consumer and get the best performance for your dollar and get a 2500K/2600K.

Don't take this the wrong way, but there's a difference in being different and a difference in being stupid.
