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.

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?

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.
