Thanks, I finally got around to posting, only five years late, derp.

It was my first build so I was pretty nerves about going with a Xeon, but I really wanted hyperthreading and didn't have the budget for an i7.

After a lot of reading on forums and youtube comments, I figured out that the E3-1230 would be roughly equivalent to a 4790, minus the integrated graphics, for the price of the i5 4590k. Worked out great.

Though the siren call of ryzen 3000 is getting pretty tempting.
