    No. 4670k is more bang for buck or Intel xeon 1230V3 but then you need video card because xeon do not have iGPU.

    Intel® Core™ i5-4670K Processor will out perform the INTEL CORE I7 4770K ? by best bang for the buck I mean cheaper hardware but the same performance, I am comfortable spending 700$.

    What SDD do you recommend?

    Samsung pro is fastest. Cheper choice here is sandisk ultra plus. Here I can buy 256GB near same price as 128GB samsung pro do have.

    For linux use and other use as well Id look mobo with Intel lan chip. I have had tree intel lan controllers and they work fine. Marvell is not so good. Sound is other thing to look. I have now Realtek ALC898 audio and it works much better that what I did have on X-58 build with Asus sabertooth.
