The Xeon is very similar to the 4790(-200 Mhz & - integrated GPU).

If you want, you can add a better GPU, better case, ATX mobo, ...

Nice, thanks very much for the info. I only asked for an i7 build because go pro recommended it but if the Xeon does the same job I may use that option. Am videoing and editing at 1080 60fps.

Ok, if anyone can suggest any improvements on this build it would be great. I'm close to ordering now. This build will be mainly for gopro editing, I'm shooting at 1080 x 60 fps. Gopro recommend an i7 but I'm happy to use what ever works budget is up to $1200. Cheers.
