i7-980X vs Dual Xeon E5620

Hi,

I'm assembling a self-built workstation only for After Effects CS3.

Please advice out of these two which will be the faster & the best option ?

I've never used server boards before. Will it everything run as smooth as desktop.?

i7-980X, 3.33 GHz, Extreme Edition (12MB Cache 6.40 GT/s Intel QPI)

v/s

Dual Xeon E5620, 2.4 GHz (12MB Cache 5.86 GT/s Intel QPI) - Please not its x2 Xeons

Thanks

Sandy

i7-980X has higher frequency and 6 cores, but Xeon E5620 gives you capability of two processors (8 cores) on a board.
