Ok so I'm getting ready to buy a new PC and am in a bit of a quandary - Do I stick with Intel i7 or the Xeon (1 or 2) lower end class of processors?
The main thing I want to get is at least 24gb of ram - i7s are easy to get that in a reasonable price - Xeon is much more expensive. Anyone know if the boost of the Xeon is that much more over a fully decked out i7?
BTW I'm looking to rig the machine out to use for 4-5 years and keep it under $3,000.
(Please no "buy a mac" comments - just not going to happen.)
