  1. Best answer
    I'd take Xeon, however be aware that you can't overclock it and it has no QuickSync support. If either is not a concern then Xeon is better.

    Notice that I5-4670 non-K could be 40-50$ cheaper yet would give you anywhere between 90 to 100% of that Xeon 's performance depending on usage and you could put that cash towards a better GPU.
  2. That's my concern, to take 4670k+z87 mobo or for same price to take xenon+cheaper mobo. By the way, what mobo would go ok with xenon + gtx 760 2gb?
  3. And also i'm new, so how "quick sync" is useful and for what?
  4. Quick Sync is Intel's technology that is used by certain programs for video encoding, it significantly reduces time required to create a video.

    Of course, it is not a feature that most people really need, so it's easy to skip it and be just fine.

    As for your motherboard support question - best way us to go to the motherboard's manufacturer site and check CPU support tab.

  6. GA-H77M-D3H mobo is ok? or should I take something cheaper or maybe better? I couldn't find exact list of CPU, onl that it supports i7.
  7. And as I understand I need ventilator for CPU? or it's coming wit fan already?
  8. If yeas please advice on cooler :)
