Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have it as its the best thing out there. Just doesn't make sense though unless you have a true need for it. If all you are doing is playing games on it, you're just throwing your money away.
To the OP, its not just the added cost of the CPU and the mobo. You also need more power, and there is more heat to deal with. Granted, these are minor things, but they never seem to be pointed out. If you go with 2011, enjoy it, its a beast...

The price jump is not significant anymore with the 3820 on the platform. It's not like you have to buy the RIVE or something. Real nice High end 1155 MB's aren't all that much cheaper and 2011 has a better upgrade path and its more feature rich.

Exactly it's like a $100 difference in Mobo price... and I'm actually paying LESS for a CPU...2600K is $303, 2700K is $330 and if I get 2011 then 3820 is only $300. I do agree that they are more expensive boards but they have confirmed the X79 boards will support IVY-E.. So I can't see why everyone thinks it's overkill when I'm paying $100 extra and getting a board that will last me a few years..

Hey Rolley, if your looking for a sabertooth x79, keep an eye on bestbuy.com, i bought mine there for 299.99 on sale, (40$ off) but atm it's for 339$. IF you want a Saber x79.

personally, i think lga2011 is completely worth it.

either of these ASRock X79 Extreme7, Extreme9 would be nice with an I7-3820
i agree that it is not overkill and defiantly get an ivy bridge-e 8c/16t late this year or early next year smile.gif

I don't think I'll get an 8C/16T until maybe like late next year because I think the prices will way to high upon release. That's the only reason I'm buying now.

So i'll either wait for a 670GTX or just keep my 6970 until late 2013 and hope for the 700 Series to drop.
Could anyone recommend a really good LGA-2011 Board?
Thanks
