3930k or 3770k..? - Page 4

post #31 of 88
If you read the thread, it states that lga2011 has 40 pcie lanes meaningyou can do x16 twice or x16/x8/x8 for graphics cards. Lga1155 has 16 lanes.

Thats how i understand it, and one of the biggest reasons Im switching.

Don't be fooled by the K suffix please!!!! It really isn't as useful on LGA 2011 as it was for maybe the 1155 chips (The 3820 is a great overclocker). Unless you are making a lot of 3D videos or doing encoding 24/7 you're just wasting money buying the 3930K when the 3820 gives you LGA 2011, the same amount of cores as the 3770K (and I suspect better performance) for half the price of the 3930K.
Covert Ash, your animated avatar is actually a good way of showing how people react when they see a K on the end of an Intel processor name biggrin.gif:D:D

Lol! biggrin.gif

I agree that the 3820 is a GREAT contender and should be worthy of serious consideration. The fact that Micro Center has dropped the price AGAIN to $250 makes it even more enticing to decide whether if I really even need the 3930K or not for Tri/Quad-SLI gaming. redface.gif

This is what annoys me about living in the UK. PC prices seem to be roughly the same as US prices in terms of a numerical figure but obviously a £ is worth quite a bit more than a dollar.

My 3820 cost me £230, which would be nearly $370 US. The 3930K over here costs roughly £450, which would be over $720 respectively. I suppose the 20% VAT rate (sales tax) we have in the UK doesn't help mad.gif

Very much. We pay 0% from Amazon and unless you are in NJ, CA, or TN you pay 0% from Newegg too.

Although prices are just lower here. We have a ton of Englanders come to NY to go shopping all the time since the value of the £ is like 1.6 to 1.0 to the $ and so they buy all high end designer clothes.

that is really helpful because when taking on large purchases you need to take into account sales tax but we don't here in the us (i bought some stuff at a microcenter and ended up not having enough money because of tax.

Yeah, I'm lucky enough to not only work about 20 minutes from a Microcenter but it's in a UEZ (Urban Enterprise Zone), so the tax rate is 3.5% instead of the normal 7% for NJ.

I do have to pay Newegg tax though, so I guess it balances out.

The same Micro Center that I will be heading to in just a few short hours! biggrin.gif I do love the UEZ, but hate the traffic around the area. frown.gif

Still too excited and can't really decide between the 3820 and 3930K! My Rampage 4 Formula was confirmed delivered today at my apartment too! eek.gifwheee.gif

Yeah, that traffic is horrendous. I skip out during lunch to pick things up. It's hard to decide since both chips have been discounted so heavily now, haha. It's hard to turn down a $499.99 3930k, but it might be harder to turn down a $249.99 3820.

Decisions, Decisions!

Let's not even talk about petrol [gas] prices, makes me laugh when Americans complain about "high" gas prices...you don't know how lucky you are! Designer clothes are one thing but you can't really do it with PC parts, customs would want a 'word' if you came back with several large unopened boxes with tech in biggrin.gif. My friend ordered some stuff from the US once and it got held it customs and they would release it until he'd paid the tax on which made the whole cost a lot more than if he'd just bought it here.

I don't really understand how exchange rates are worked out but surely it has something to do with the general value of goods?
