  1. It does say the X3360 is supported, so I wouldn't worry about that.

    However, please do bear in mind that you will likely be spending approx $120 (eBay price) for only slight improvement in gaming performance.

    Have you considered overclocking the E5200? My secondary system's E7200 is still in service at 3.2GHz.

    yeah but i 've found a very very cheap (like 70 bucks) semi-new here and i'm wondering if it will improve or degrade my sistem since its an server processor...

    A Xeon processor is a hobbyist's dream :) Server processor simply means that it is far more robust and reliable than a consumer processor. Many Xeons also have better overclocking capabilities due to a stricter selection process.

    If nothing else can be bought for $70, then the Xeon is probably the best choice. I am not sure where you live, but don't forget to take a look through Craigslist or similar sites, as people are occasionally selling used hardware for good price. Always exercise caution when buying used, however.

    well that's great news then, so i should invest in this used one, i live in Brazil by the way, and there is not many options on internet stores to buy an i live in a small city so there no options nearby also, i was cogitating the top of each category in the link i posted, and this X3360 was the most cheap, not in raw price but in the delivery price as well since the seller lives in the same state as i do. so Thank to all advises and tips you gave me !
