Tough call...200 Mhz more, or 2MB of cache more.


But, I bet that board doesn't support that CPU...and then I checked the QVL list. Now I am curious myself. :p

I had a friend suggest a chip like that to me, then doing some research, the Xeon chips have many less PCI-E lanes or something. So I would say go for the 3570.

Id say the Xeon personally,they always seem to be better binned chips. Of course im not sure about overclocking if you plan to do that
