    xeon processors arn't designed to play games but yes they should in theory work, not sure how it will go in load balancing, may only use one of them in the game. I have looked on the nvidia website and that card you have is very old though and isn't designed for gaming so swap it out for a gaming card (unless put that card onto the PCIe 8x slot)
