    I found this cpu over ark.... Xeon E3-1230
    http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=52271
    Well... it's basically a i7-2600 but for way less money and without integrated vga which is veryyyyy good because puts power output down to 80w
    I was thinking.... well... for the most points.... 3 of these with 3 cheap (well, I won't need to overclock and all mobos nowadays seems to use pretty decent components) motherboards on stock speed can be faster to generate points than 2 2600k (on a more expensive motherboard) overclocked to 4.0ghz for less money... do you guys agree ?

    Yeah, I was looking at that. I'm just not sure if it's compatible with standard Sandy Bridge motherboards...

    well it doesn't says anything about chipset.... anyway.... I think it would be a very risky move not to allow it to be used with h/9/x 6 series chipset...
