This is one I have been eyeing for awhile

It's a good board, pair it with a 3820 (or 3930k if you want to splash out) and16GB RAM and you'll have a great gaming/ editing rig. thumb.gif

That was my original first choice when I first started thinking of going to Intel, I like the x16/x16/x8. I could use the x8 for a physx card, do you think there would be any hit to it's performance being in the x8 slot? I'm guessing no but I'm not sure. And since I already have 16 gigs of ram just need the board and cpu. That 3930 would be nice, but too pricey, I'm already looking at 100 bucks over budget but that's no big deal. I think I'll go with that 3820

I'm not convinced a PhysX card would really be necessary with SLI, but I can't imagine taking a big performance hit from 8x.

And the 3820 is a good choice. thumb.gif

Well I know in borderlands 2 if I don't set one of my 480s to be the physx card I take massive hits in the fps dept, plus I have a GTX 275 that I'm waiting for my wife to get back from her mother that I could use for Physx anyhow.
So for my needs of gaming, and some light video encoding and photo editing the i7 3820 is my best bet? Sorry for my lack of knowledge, the only cpus I seem to know much about are the two phenoms I have owned. I do know that the i5s are supposed to be the unofficial golden cpu for if you're going to be strictly gaming, but as said I do do some editing here and there

I think so, the 3820 is comparable to the 1155 CPU's in gaming, but I think the additional support for multiple GPU's and more RAM will benefit you.

However you don't have to just take my opinion as fact, OCN has many 2011 vs 1155 threads full of information.

Good luck with the build. thumb.gif

Ivy does run hotter but only after certain voltages and clocks. I think that spot is around 4.5ghz or something. Sandy runs hotter below 4.5 but runs maybe slightly cooler or on par.

Yeah if you are talking just straight SB, but I'm not sure you could compare SB-E to IB temps wise.

Between SB snd IB, IB would be the better option regardless of the heat as SB will be EOL soon according to an article posted on here earlier.

But I'd still go for SB-E.

Although I think you're putting far too much emphasis pcie bus speed, I totally agree with Para. If you've got the funds, sandy-E is very tough to beat, EOL, or not.

Even though most Z77 motherboards run at 8X/8X for CFX/SLI configurations, if you have an Ivy Bridge processor, you can use PCI-E 3.0. PCI-E 3.0 is double the bandwidth of a PCI-E 2.0 board. Thus, 8X/8X times two = 16X/16X.

Also, there is very little difference between 8X/8X and 16X/16X. Unless you're an frame freak who can distinguish between 125 FPS and 130 FPS, the difference only comes into play at higher resolutions/multi-monitor setups.

 

Example: Scaling with HD 7970 and GTX 680 with PCI-E 2.0 vs PCI-E 3.0
