i5 is plenty for gaming. You should worry about spending more on GPUs for "ballz to the wall" gaming.

Unless you are running multiple monitor, quad-core memory, multiple SLI/Crossfire high end GPUs.... then you might be able to take advantage of the high end CPU + Motherboard combination. Do you render video? Architecture software? HIgh CPU intensity programs? Running a server? Cause if all you're doing is trying to acquire higher than 60 - 120FPS on a monitor for games... the 3930K overclocked is overkill.

If you're die hard on spending money to spend money for the sake of a killer gaming experience - go get yourself a U3011 30" Dell Monitor, 2 GTX 680's or 2 7970's, some higher end cooling equipment and enjoy a beastly rig on the highest resolution and sweet monitor. That alone is going to run you over $2500 - but you'll notice THAT performance. 3930k for overclocks.... not so much.

Common misconception: "The fastest cpu is the best one for gaming because it's the fastest"

Fact: FPS difference between 3930k and 2500k = 0 (especially with overclocking involved)

Fact #2: "ballz to the wallz" gaming will depend on your gpu's in this situation.

Fact #3: Chicken tacos are delicious.

While 6 cores sounds tempting unless you are using applications that will take advantage of those extra cores the 3770k is the better choice for gaming. spend the extra cash of GPU and SSD.

Sir, that would depend entirely on whether the game in question is cpu limited or gpu limited. A cpu limited game (WoW, SC2, some others) will certainly perform better on the 3930k at the same speed. And more games are taking advantage of multiple cores.

I was able to get my 3930k up to 4.8 on a H100 but under p95 it was 85+ degrees so quite hot, but possible. It is a very nice processor can take just about anything you throw at it and will still have power to spare.
I am not familiar with the 3770k but I know that it will probably do as well as a 3930k when just playing games.

But overall, the most bang for the buck here for gaming is a 2500K with the cost difference vs. the 3930k going to GPU and Monitor, yes?

Also, chicken tacos are pretty delicious.

For those doing 2011 builds, I'd bet there are more people going cheap... getting a 3820 and gunning for a 6 core IB-E in a year or two than starting off w/a 6 core SB-E. Those of us that don't want a 1155 and feel the need to do a full build in 2-3 years. The 3820 is on sale at MC now for 229.99... the in dfference in price will make up for the 2011 boards over a Z77 board. Even most other retailers will have them well below a SB/IB quad w/HT.

That's what I did. All my parts are coming today!

And chicken tacos *are* delicious.

Enough with the Tacos, Im getting hungry -.-

If just for gaming I would get the Ivy 3770k (Gonna build my self a lan box with that this summer wink.gif )

If you can OC the 3930K around 5% higher than the 3770K then the 3930K will be superior in gaming (in situations where 4 or less cores are used or the game doesn't take advantage of the extra cache). OCing both CPUs depends almost entirely on your cooling.

That said the processing power wise the 3770K doesn't stand a chance.
