Then go X79 whether it is a 3930k or a 3820. IBE will come out next year and will support 6-8 cores atleast if not more. lga1155 dies with ivy bridge.

Custom water cooling, perhaps?

The best option would be to go with 2011.. It's the newest platform available, and Ivy Brigde-E will be out later this year too.

Pure gaming right now: 3770K (assuming IB doesn't have temp/leakage problems like some leaks have shown)

future proof gaming + everything else: 3930K.

The 6% or so ipc increase over SB with IB isn't all that amazing...
