The term "workstation" generally implies hyperthreading will be handy.....the 3579k doesn't do that.

the 1155 socket is a dead end .... how long ya wanna keep this for and how long replacement parts will be available is a serious concern ?

Do your workstation apps benefit from CUDA ? If so, AMD card doesn't do that.
WD Green is too slow for workstation and gaming

if wd green is slow, should i get seagate barracuda or caviar blue?

Yeah that will definitely confuse people around here. If you want gaming you should definitely get the i5-4670K, it's the newest version of the 3570K, and LGA 1155 will most likely be discontinued at the end of the year.
