Wich one is more fast for rendering video? I will appreciate any answer.
Well, this is why you start a thread for your own answer.
Xeon is not for any general purposes. It's leans more onto the servers CPU. E6600 or Q6600 with only 2GB of RAM. Unless you're planning to do some video editing then 4GB of RAM isn't needed. Wait, "video rendering" means you're going to edit videos or what?
