If you don't have a specific need for Xeon, I would avoid them :-)
Long firmware update at boot (most of the time).
Pick one regular powerful I7 and use the saved money to bought more ram ;-)

Facts etablished with a Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1535M v5 @ 2.90GHz

Depending of what you want to do, yes ECC is nice to have.

But I'm on tumbleweed ;-)

This will be my workstation. The reason I chose the E3 1240 v5 is that it
doesn't have an IGPU
and I'm able to buy it for $366 CDN so I'm saving $90!!

The graphics are provided by my GeForce 1050 Ti.

I'm using it for running multiple VM from VmWare in addition to running CAD
