Xeon processorers are made for server computers. If you want a computer for gaming you're far better of with an i5 CPU. Also the price on xeon CPUs are rather expensive, and you can get a i5/i7 with equal gaming performance for half the price ;)

Your current rig are (P)LGA771-socket with DDR2 RAM. Xeon W3520 uses LGA 1366-socket and DDR3 RAM. So you actually has to change both mobo+ram for an xeon upgrade as well. So either way you have to replace mobo+ram for both xeon and i5/i7 upgrade. And an Xeon CPU alone often costs more than an i5+mobo+ram with similar performance.
