The only Xeon 3.6GHz single-core processor I know of is based on the netburst (same as the pentium 4). This is old. Consider that even a core 2 based processor or even an Athlon II processor would outperform it at a lower clockspeed (under 3GHz)
With all respect you are wrong. On 3dmark03 my 2 x Xeon 3.2 533fsb/1mb l3 with an OC'd 7600 gpu scores approx 9600 which matches up to many of the core 2 and athlon x 2 processors.
On the other hand if he has the budget for the I3 then that would definitely be a better build but if he needs to save money then 670 would easily do what he is looking to do with it.
