It's primary job will be as a DAW workstation but I like to play the odd game (assassin's creed and that sort) and I mean occasionally. Games are now calling for 3 ghz cpu's to play but I'm not all that familiar with the Xeons. I have zero desire for a console. I'm not into them as I find they tend to pull me in for a little too long. So will I be able to toss a game in under boot camp once a month for stress relief and not be pissed off?
