Intel Xeon Processor??
« on: March 31, 2008, 02:07:42 PM »

Good Day to all of you.. Hmm.. Well I'm just new here in this forum and i would like to ask a question for the Computer Master out there.. I live in the Philippines, not long time a time ago while I'm surfing the net i find this site where it has a price list for the parts of a computer and i saw an Intel Xeon processor and it's priced is affordable to me.. Hmm.. My question now is it Ok to buy this processor? because some of my I.T. friends here tell me that it is for Server based processor only and it is not suitable for PC HOME USER.. I need your comment on this before i buy it? ASAP.. Thankzs..

Which Xeon?  A lot of them are almost exactly equivalents of the Core 2 brothers.

kumusta :)

Your IT friends are mostly right- many Xeons are a different socket, but recently there have been some that will work in consumer class PCs.  There are quite a few people buying the Xeon 3310 as they are essentially identical to the Core 2 E8400, plus it's easier to find- E8400s are in short supply.  You should do a search to find out more details as I haven't done this myself.
