FCPX uses the GPU for most realtime effects/rendering/ exporting task- so I would actually recommend the opposite. The CPU is for less real-time tasks like computation of optical flow analysis and loading media/projects. So I would say in a broad sense if you're working with huge projects (in terms of amount of media/metadata) with not much effects the faster CPU would be better, if you're working with less complex projects but will be applying a ton of effects/multicam/repeated rendering get the faster GPU. Clearly the fastest of both would be ideal but if this is Mac is primarily for FCPX, I'd get the better GPU...
