http://pcpartpicker.com/p/zcwZ i never really used a Xeon before and i heard they only work with a 1333mhz ram so i used that and i'm trying to make a good workbench for a friend and i usually use a i7 but the Xeons are alot cheaper. if it isn't compatible i'd just use a i5 but the Xeon is alot stronger

your build wasnt so compatable in the first place. xeons work in the board, just that for h61 chipset boards, they need a bios update.

a xeon is the same speed as a i7 3770, just without graphics and will run way cooler.

a fx is around the same speed as a i7 in workstation tasks, but the advantage is that it can overclock. the disadvantage is that it will run hotter and will use 2x as much power as a xeon. just a heads up.

Memory support is the same as the H61M-DGS that you originally selected. Both support DDR3 1600MHz modules.
