Son, this computer of yours isn't even worth trying to brag over. You've assembled a series of two year old antiques and you're calling it gold.
Now we're going to start you off with some math. We're going to compare multithreaded CPU benckmarks of your $780 2 x Xeon E5620s to benchmarks of a single $570 i7-3930k. Look at this link:
Now here's the math. One E5620 gets a benchmark of roughly one third of the benchmark of the i7-3930k. You multiply that by two and you get two thirds. So what you're going to do is spend $210 more and get two thirds the performance of a modern CPU? Now tell me you really think this is a good idea.
