Xeon E5462 2.8GHz Quad-Core

I've discovered one of these for $65. I was actually looking for an i3 processor for more than twice the price, but drawing up comparisons it seems like the Xeon is a better route to take, especially given the price?

If I did go for the Xeon, should I get two (I've heard that's best) and if so, would I need a specific mobo?

Thanks.

  1. The Xeon's aren't very good for gaming. They're mostly for number crunching machines.

    Ah, thanks. I'll stick with the i3 then.
