2x Xeon E5-2630 vs i7 - 3770 Tags: CPUs Xeon Intel i7 Build Last response: October 22, 2012 7:15 PM in CPUs Share mothandras October 18, 2012 2:33:20 PM It is time to build a new computer, and I am either going to build a new Z77 based system with a core i7 - 3770 or a 2x Xeon E5-2630 system. I do a lot of heavy graphics, and encoding/rendering. I already have a AMD 7970 video card, but I may buy a GTX690 with the new build. How much performance advantage would I have with the dual Xeons? For gaming and other things would this system be overkill? More about : xeon 2630 3770 mothandras October 22, 2012 7:15:33 PM Any opinions? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
