The only hardware difference I'd recommend for Linux vs. Windows when building a desktop is to get an Nvidia GPU. AMD's cards do not perform as well, due to really crappy drivers. Nvidia's proprietary drivers work extremely well.

Me too. Also AMD has been contributing to the open source driver recently.

And you can expect to see big improvements in the Linux driver now that there are Steamboxes.

Current ideas:
GPU: http://www.hardwareversand.de/articledetail.jsp?adp=0&aid=72029&agid=1165&apop=3
CPU: http://www.hardwareversand.de/Socket+1150+%28XEON%29/78087/Intel+Xeon+E3-1220v3+Bx%2C+LGA1150%2C+ohne+K%C3%BChler.article

Still need to find more stuff.
And xeon because why get a CPU with a graphical unit if you have a seperate GPU?
thoughts?

There are more benefits to the i5/i7 line than just the GPU. I'd think you could get an i5 for the same price.

The GPU looks good though.

What other benefits are there?
Because, as far as i know, the xeon is quicker than the i5....

Actually looking online it seems that they are pretty much the same(though you can't overclock the xeons it seems).

Never felt the need to overclock so far.

yeah, overclocking is basically the only difference. the newer haswell xeons don't have hyperthreading either, though, i don't think, so that might be something you'd care about.

if it's an i5 or a xeon hyperthreading shouldn't really matter
