I'm building a Hackintosh computer for music recording and have been struggling to find out what the difference between these two processors really is.

Can ya'll help me out?

Thanks!

More about xeon specific
  1. Looks exactly similar to me, except for that insignificant 100MHz extra turbo on the i7 :)
    Only the "PCI Express Configurations" thingy looks different, but i don;t think that's something to worry about.
