A friend tried running a Xeon as a gaming PC and it didn't work so well He found the lack of CPU speed was a limiting factor and as for overclocking you'll get pretty much nowhere with it as it will be limited by the BCLK which might go up to 102 to 103Mhz maybe.. I think some hit 106 but that's a bit of a hit and miss thing...Hello everybody.
It has been a long time since my last post and the reason is because i took a break from building PCs after my Daughter was born.
In the last few weeks i have been thinking about building a Xeon PC but i am a bit lost about which CPU buy i have 3 in mind but still cant decide that is why i need advices from you guys.
1- Xeon E5-1650 V2
2- Xeon E5-1650 V3
3- Xeon E5-1680 V3
Of course i want to Overclock and the PC is going to be used to play Games.
Any suggestions/advice will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
