Best LGA2011 CPU for gaming
So long story short, my main desktop with an i7-5820K fell victim to vandalism and I am left with my older workstation that has a Xeon E5-1650. Fortunately the only components that need to be replaced in my desktop are the CPU and motherboard, so I'm going to move my stuff (i.e. 980Ti, SSD, etc) into the workstation and call it a day. I was curious, however, if there is any better choice of CPU. The E5-1650 should be fine but I am curious if the higher tier chips (e.g. E5-2697v2) would actually provide any noticeable performance gains. Gaming will be the primary function with the occasional rendering with applications such as Corel VideoStudio.
