Would an i5 2400 3.1 GHz 4 core 4 thread or Intel Xeon L5640 2.26 GHz 6 core 12 thread be better to have as the main system for my roommate because I got both but I'm wondering what would last longer and work more with newer game titles the parts are interchangeable between them besides the two processors and boards of course so that's what CPU the better choice?

L5640 at stock is quite close to 2400, but if you overclock it it can be considerably faster. The OC potential is absolutely huge for it, even without high end cooling.

L5640 is better because it is cheaper to upgrade it later if needed.

L5640 on china board so little scared to put to high watt of a chip in it this Xeon only 60 w which is crazy for how old it is but I think its better to have more cores and threads than speed in the long run
