    no, xeon is not a desktop processor

      Well Xeon brand is used for workstation processors as well - but usually together with ECC ram on a suited board. You could use a Xeon cpu on desktop boards too but then without ECC ram support (Skylake blocked that somehow).

        The cheaper Xeons are actually quite often considered for gaming PCs. For example last months' threads about xeons on reddit's /r/buildapc:

        Sure, there are arguments for and against it, but at least it seems like a viable choice.

          But that will not stop you from use it in your desktop, if money is not a problem.
