I intend to OC whichever I go with to 3.6. with the xeon it'd be 190x19 ram at 1330mhz. With i5 760 it'd be 170x21 ram at 1360mhz
I realise the extra cores might not help much with gaming, but I will be converting allot of movies from VOB to AVI, which is where the extra cores would come in right?
I'd really love it if I could convert these movies while gaming on top of it!
Things like that would only really work if you were doing them on seperate hard drives. HDDs cause much greater bottlenecks in multitasking than CPUs. When I'm doing something hard drive intensive and try to game on top of it load times take forever(and this is with 2 caviar blacks in raid0).
