I was looking at

Intel Xeon E5-2670 2.60GHz and

Xeon e5 2420v2

Mobo:
MFU Intel X79-B75 2011
https://www.amazon.com/MFU-X79-B75-E5-2620-Memory-Motherboard/dp/B07PCN4CSR/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?keywords=x79 motherboard&qid=1560687954&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmr0&tag=linus21-20

 

is this mobo compatible with Xeon E5-2670 2.60GHz I know its not listed on amazon but I have heard that it is...

cpu first,

mobo provide no performance, eve cheap capable one will do the job.

dont know how much you can find these old parts, but they are definitely expensive on intel side 

 

get new parts for better & cheaper

Drop the CPU to an r5 1600 and get yourself a used HD 7970. Should be doable with the leftover budget.

isnt a 7970 extremely hot and power hungry??

for display purpose only look for some very entry level stuff like gt 710 all way down to gt 210 etc

Ghz edition was iirc. 

 

You can also find an r9 280x.

 

Ah, i just re-read the thing. 

 

Hd 7850 is cheap and good. Does draw a bit of power, but it offers some flexibility since it is using GCN and has the driversupport.

Depends on the 600watt.

 

You can easily get away with an hd 7850 and 450 watt. Depending on which PSU it is.
