Default Xeon X3440?

NCIX.com - Buy Intel Xeon X3440 Quad Core Processor LGA1156 2.53GHZ 8MB L3 Cache 95W Retail Box - BX80605X3440 In Canada.

Good cpu to use in a p55 build? seeing how it has HT and is cheaper the i7 860..

If its anything like my old X3350, any board that supports the desktop counterpart (which was the Q9450 for me) will support the "Xeon" counterpart. Generally the Xeon's that work with desktop motherboards are the exact same as the desktop chip, Intel just renamed them so OEMs like Dell can say "This server is great because it has a Genuine Intel Xeon Server Processor!"

I thought about getting a x3450 instead of a i5 750, only thing bugging me is the lower turbo boost multis, but HT might compensate.
