    Opinions on CPU


      Good afternoon.


      I'm looking to get some input on which CPU to get.  I'm looking at the following:




      Xeon E3-1231V3


      The Xeon seems interesting and can be had for only $10 more than the 4690K.


      My main purpose of my build is kind of a hybrid.  Not dedicated gaming, but want to be able to play games (newer ones included, i.e. Dragon's Age:Inquisition) without having to worry about whether they will work.


      I will have a dedicated GPU (thinking of the GTX 960 Gaming 4G GeForce GTX 960 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16) so the graphics on the CPU is not a concern.


      I'm leaning towards the Xeon but am just looking for some additional info/thoughts.


      I have looked at all the benchmarks, etc. and am now looking for real world thoughts.


      Will be more than likely purchasing tomorrow (5/25)
