8320 or a 3820?
If you meant the 3820 then I don't really see a point in going with that chip unless you really specifically need some features that X79 offers.
Z77/Z87 are more than enough for handling crossfire without an issue and right now the Z77 and Z87 mobos have better features than X79 ones. And 3770K/4770K are better performers than the 3820.
One thing that might make X79 worth it for the lower price bracket (meaning below 3930K price range) is the IB-E version of the 3820 (probably a 4820) that's going to be coming out in early September.
But other than that I really don't suggest buying into X79 unless you go with a 6-core CPU.
