CPU and RAM questions.

1. What are the differences between the i7 980x and the Xeon X5680 CPU's that work for and against use in a Gaming computer and Workstation computer?
2. On a LGA 1366 Motherboard, can you use higher clock frequencies RAM than the Motherboard is said to be using, example, if the board is said to use 1333Mhz DDR3 RAM, can you make the bored use 2000+Mhz RAM?

Your help is greatly needed.

Re: CPU and RAM questions.

AS i have seen that the Xeon is gearedup for the workstation purposes, where the i7 is more used for the home and also for the gaming purpose. From my point of view i would go with the Xeon and if you want then you need to make sure that you get a workstation gfx card and not a gaming one.
