Why would any1 buy the i7 2600 (non K) when there is the Intel Xeon Processor E3-1230 that seems to me to be identical with only 2x(100mhz) less on the multiplier and no built in graphics that no1 uses on an i7 anyways? At 230$ it seems to me to be a nice choice for people who want an i7 sandy bridge but don't plan on OCing...or am I missing something here?

The e3-1235 isn't much more and it has the IGP. Would make a pretty darn amazing folding CPU, I hear all the Asus WS boards support them.
