You will want the i7 3770k.

Here is why.

As far as comparing that to the Xeon, the Xeon lacks overclocking which might be a drawback for you especially if you are a gamer. If you aren't a gamer though, go with the Xeon and get an SSD.

i see thanks. silly me for thinking i found a shortcut to achieving 3770k standards by going the xeon 1230 v2 route.

update: i am not that big of a gamer though
