  1. Xeon cpu's are best for server applications not gaming, the 3970x is only 15% better then the 3930k for double the cost. In my opinion I would just go with the 3930k but if you have to go with the 3970x
  2. the i7-3970 is better for both and I think that's the $1000 CPU Intel makes. It's like best of the best.
  3. what you require for 3ds max and maya extreme rendering any other xeon or i7 ony rendering for future

  5. Don't buy a Xeon, they are for servers.

    3960x will be really good for rendering, it would in fact be the best. Until the 3980x (I think) Haswell will be like 10% or so better.
  6. Xeons are not just for servers. The lga2011 i7 6-core are actually the same dies as the lga2011 6-8 core xeons. The only reason to go with xeons is for multi cpu configs since i7 only support single cpu configs. You need to be more specific on which renderer you are using and how much you want to spend.
