I was looking to get an Intel CPU for my new computer, and I was wondering if the Xeon 1230 V2 would be any good.

More about : xeon games

yeah you can use it for games just not as good as 3770k or 3570k

From what i have read they can be just as good as perhaps the 3570K

Intel xeon 1230V2 is fine CPU for any usage (not for overclocking)
It is faster than 3570k and price is about same.

They will get exactly the same performance as an equivalent i series. The 1230v2 is very good price/performance if you don't plan to oc. Although I would suggest a 3570k as it costs less and gets more performance when oced.

The 1230 is basically an i7-3770 without

iGP
OC capability

All for the price of an i5. Yes it's good but make sure your Mobo BIOS supports it.

actually is better to go for an i5!xeon is not really made for games but rendering!

some use dual xeon for games!!just to say you know dual cpus and something like that!(friendly)
anyway i advise you to go for the i5 as it will perfom better than the xeon!

A 3.3ghz Ivy quad core is plenty for games. You have no idea what you are talking about. There is no difference in gaming or rendering vs a i7 at 3.3ghz. The i5 is 3.4ghz which is an unnoticeable increase but of course it'll be better when oced. If they don't plan to oc the e3 will be better especially with many multiplayer games using more than 4 threads, it will be better performance.

no but its dual and spend more money also xeon onlu for games its a total waste if its mostly used for rendering and some games than ok!but the performance wont be like 3570k but less!

The e3 1230v2 is not a dual core nor can it can used in a dual cpu config. $20 is such a budget breaker. It will be the same, again you're rambling false information. Go google benchmarks, xeons will get exactly the same performance as long as the specs are the same. Software is irrelevant.
