Budget Build with S3420GP

Im trying to get my friend into PC gameing but hes still in school so we are trying to build a cheap pc. I have 16 GB of ECC RAM flying around and I got a deal for a Intel S3420GP Board+Xeon X3430 do you guys think it would be worth it for 40€? I would probably combine it with a GTX 680.

    I question the wisdom of going with an X3430 when the X3440 is only slightly more expensive but has hyper threading AND a higher base clock, especially on a server board which means you won't be overclocking.
