  1. unless you are hosting servers u dont need xeons QX6700 is more of a mainstream processer. Xeons are for desptop servers
  2. Those are socket 771, which is for servers (i.e. more than one CPU socket), which cannot be used for gaming or overclocking.

    There are reports that the 775 Xeons will overclock better than the Core 2 branded CPUs, but it's your call, as not all motherboards support them (like mine *sad face*)
