If I remember correctly, Xeons aren't optimized for gaming and OP's i7 is overkill for most games. the i5-3570k will admirably handle most, if not all games, and it's cheaper than the i7. Saved cash might prolly be put towards a better GPU

even though the HD 4000 is a definitive step up from most integrated graphics solutions, it is not intended for "hardcore" 3D games. But given that you still have to save for a dedicated CPU, there's no stopping you from gaming with the HD 4000. Just don't expect much out of it, keep settings low.

Wait, you're getting a Xeon for the HD 4000? The HD 4000 is also in the 3570k. Look here: http://ark.intel.com/products/65520/Intel-Core-i5-3570K...

As for the benches provided by NooB12, you have to take note that they are from an artificial test and not a real world application like games. Look around here in Tom's, I'm pretty sure they covered that in the past.

C2D?

Diablo 2 is an old game, MW3 has less taxing requirements, but Crysis? What settings and resolutions are you playing at?

So you monitor your fps with benchmarking tools like Fraps? If not, lag becomes relative.

I remember playing Red Alert 3 on my old PC with an integrated graphics solution without lag. When I upgraded, I discovered that I was playing the game on the lowest possible settings and with soooo much lag. lol

Edited: Sorry, Core 2 Duo

Correct - Xeons are meant for tasks that require muscle like server application hosting. The i5 is perfect for gaming and grab a 660ti/670 - that will make Crysis your biotch.

What are you talking about intel HD 4000 is no where near the quality you need for gaming you need to get either a 7870 or a 670 to game

He's saying he could get by on that until he can afford a GPU, and he most likely can.

See, OP? Xeons aren't for gaming, they maybe faster but they're running on the wrong track.

As for your options, here's my thought, get the 3570k and sink whatever savings you have from the purchase for the GPU.

Yep, said that as well, but he said he would still have to save up for a discrete card so I gave that advice.

Also, the 7870/670 are at the top of the quality & price spectrum of graphics cards, so setting the standard from there is inconsiderate for those in a budget.

nVidia and AMD has entry-level offerings such as the 650 and 7770 that reject your notions.

For your typical desktop or gaming user, they are no faster or better then a much cheaper desktop CPU or motherboard.

Sometimes the 1155 Xeon's are cheap enough to be considered in a desktop build ... but in that case, it is simply a glorified i7 and won't perform any better.

The most ideal situation to use the E3-1230 V2 is when:

No overclocking
Using a mid-high end discrete video card in the build
Need the extra threads
Don't need Quick Sync for transcoding

Otherwise you'd be better of getting the i7 3770 for ~$50 more. Months ago there was a ~$100 difference between the Xeon and the cheapest i7, but the gap has closed now, to the point that you really need to fit the above criteria to make it worthwhile.

And to add, i7 is no faster than i5 in games... and then add that i5 k series can overclock.. the xeon loses appeal quickly

I think it would be waste of money if you get the HTPC card and then buy a better one once you've saved enough.

Either get the HD 7850 or the GTX 660. There will be variance for every board manufacturers but those GPUs will be within your budget and will perform admirably. Bear in mind that the manufacturer, Powercolor has known to sell faulty cards, so you might want to steer away from that brand.

Good luck.
