http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Xeon-E3-1231-v3-vs-Intel-Core-i5-4690K/m11040vs2432

Which wouuld be better for gaming/video rendering?

Would either of those CPU's bottleneck a XFX RX480 8GB 1370Mhz?

And also i have a CoolerMaster Nepton 240m Water Cooler so should i opt for the overclocking or extra four threads.

And my FINAL question is what will the extra 4 threads be good for?

If you also have a z97 mobo, I guess the 4690k would be a better fit. Otherwise, stick to the Xeon.

Yeah, I'd say the i5 is better, if the equivalent i7 is less than the xeon I'd say go for that. Overclocking can often make the i7's well out perform the Xeons for not that much more. The real power of Xeon is ECC and 2/4/8 sockets, and more than 8 cores. 


EREBUS | 2x Intel Xeon X5670 | 60GiB DDR3 1333Mhz | 3x 146GB RAID 5 10K SAS | AMD FirePro V5900

The Xeon is the equivalent of the i7-4790.  So basically you're comparing an i7-4790 to an i5-4690k. 

 

If you're not overclocking, its a slam-dunk in favour of the Xeon E3-1231v3.  If you're overclocking, then you might be able to do better with the i5, but not by much.

 

Personally I'd take the Xeon E3.  Remember that there's no embedded GPU in that Xeon E3 chip, so you'll always have to supply your own.

The Xeon should be better for editing and gaming. I have one, and it freakin rocks. It performs just as well as a lot of i7s but much cheaper. The hyper-threading in the Xeon will definitely help with rendering.
