They are good CPU's but the RAM support is only DDR3. Personally I'd go with what the other guy suggested and go for a Ryzen 2nd gen or higher. DDR4 RAM is starting to become very reasonably priced in that I don't think about sourcing second hand when I can get a 16GB kit below $100 new!

If you have one lying around then yes give it a go,.. don't know why but I assumed you were looking to pick up one specifically to do this - under that circumstance I would opt for a AMD Ryzen probably gen 2!

personally using one myself -->

e5 xeons used to be a good proposition before ryzen 3k was announced. its only good now if u are still using the lga2011 platform and get the really top of the line, or u want dirt cheap octa core systems. even my 2696v2 is only on par with a 2600/x in a real world workload like handbrake, and 2600 + mobo bundles are around the same price on taobao. i would personally go the ryzen route next time since there is actually an upgrade path.

I don't do intensive gaming, and such a setup would have suffice for most of my usages no to mention I'll save quite a fair bit

Only worth it if it is lga2011-3, 12 cores n above and you can get it below $200.

Because the actual performance of, let say a single 3rd gen Xeon, is roughly half of a single ryzen 4000.

If TS has already a Xeon E5 LGA2011 cpu and just want to explore using a Xeon to play games (AAA games included), then as what other has suggested. Go grab a cheap X79 or X99 board (if LGA 2011-3

However, a decent GPU is also required to game at smooth and good gaming experience. A GTX 1070 8GB will be a good combo if you have budget.

The below YouTuber has very detailed reviews on most of the cheap china boards for X79/99 and sone Xeon CPU.

Actually Intel didn't change much from 6th Gen.

I'm still using my 6th Gen I7

The e5 Xeon ppl discussing about belong to 3rd or 4th generation (2012-2014).

The Xeon based on 6th gen upwards mostly haben decommissioned, unlikely can get cheap. And also no point as amd solution is cheaper n better.
