Cad help on processors

Hi guys could do with some help,I'm looking into a new workstation I solely use rhino and rhino plugins such as orca and flamingo nxt and can't decide what's best for me regarding what processor is best for me. I'm looking either at the exon quad core e3-1270v2 3.5ghz 500gt/s or the i7 quad core i7-3770k 3.5ghz 8mb cache.
What's everyone's thoughts, would be grateful for feedback.

  1. Yes, the xeon is a good option for it, but i'd get the Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2, it's much more cheaper and as good as that one, it's the best bang for the cpu xeon cpu.
  2. The xeon and a workstation mobo, that supports ecc ram.
  3. id get the xeon as it can give u more than 32gb of ram. and socket 1155 is limited to only 32gb of ram.
  4. What do you think of the 1240 v2 it only runs at 3.3ghz rather than 3.5ghz will I notice the speed diffrence?
  5. Get the Xeon 1230 v2, it's less 40$, the difference is just 0.1ghz more for the 1240 v2, it won't make a difference, the performance difference will be negligible, the 1230 v2 can reach 3.7 ghz with turbo boost, the 1240 v2 3.8 ghz.
  6. Do you think it's worth looking at the new i7 extreme 6 core or will the 1230 give me everything I need?
  7. The 1230 v2 will be a good choice for you, best bang for the buck cpu for your needs.
  8. Thanks for all your help do you thinking should go for 32mb ram it stick with 16mb?
  9. 16GB will be suffice.
  10. 16 gigs would be nice but if u can afford 32 gb will be handy for editing.
