My System Specs

Default

the last post above mine nailed it pretty decent. Think of it like a professional GPU, a desktop user has virtually no need of it, however, there will be certain extents, example, one of EVGA massive motherboards that support dual cpu use, they have to use Xeons due to the extra links they provide, regular "consumer" cpus do not have enough QPI links to support dual cpu usage.

Beyond that, simple tighter control over voltages, binning, error fixing and such, but its costs ALOT more for something comparable to a consumer grade such as i7 960 or i7 2500k vs thier direct Xeon counterparts, less stringent binning way less pricey :)
