Intel i7 7700K or Intel Xeon E3 1275 V6

I´m trying to put together a low cost workstation, but I don´t know what CPU to choose.

I would use it to work with 3d modeling. BIM software such as Rhinoceros, Grasshopper and Revit, and occasionally, for rendering with Vray for Rhino or Sketchup.

I would match it with a Nvidia Quadro P2000, and 32 to 64 Gb Ram.

I understand that both have the same number of cores and threads, as well as cache memory.

The differences I notice is that the i7 works at a higher frequency (4.2/4.5) compaired to the Xeon (3.8/4.2) and that the Xeon has a P630 GPU which I understand is helpful when working in CAD software.

In your opinion, which would be more convenient for a workstation i7 or E3?

Thank you!!!
