hi

so if you had a choice, would you buy an intel i5 2500, or a xeon 1235? ive heard the xeon is basically a i7 2600 cocked 200mhz lower, but are there any other differences?

my company that i work for is offering 2 separate builds for some design, video editing and photoshop work. i also use word and web browsing a lot too. both builds are identical (with 12gbs ram, 1tb hard drives, 430w PSUs, and Windows Home Premium. they also have some GPUs but i forget which ones. i think they were some chips that were in the $100 range)

so, Xeon 1235 or i5 2500? obviously, no overclocking

thanks

Hi :) 

You need to consider prices.... Xeons plus motherbards are drastically more expensive...they are for Servers, not ordinary machines...


All the best Brett :)

im not paying for them. money doesn't matter. they just gave me these two choices, i cant change anything unless im willing to pay for it myself (i'm not, lol)

don't think about prices; strictly performance.
