Can anyone give me a reason why i should go for an extra $180 for an LGA 2011 i7-3820 over an i5-3570k. and an older board though memory bandwidth is greater, but with only 2 useable slots for graphics there isn't a PCIE bottleneck in the z77.
Or an extra $100 for an unlocked i7-3770k over an i5-3570k
Thanks,
and here i thought my mind was made up

2 biggest reasons being hyperthreading and PCIE lanes, both of your 7870s will run PCIE 3.0 @16x with 2011, as compared to @8x with 1155. Not much difference, but noticeable in benchmarks, which can be said about hyperthreading when compared in gaming.

The biggest reason I switched to LG 2011? RAM slots on both sides of the CPU biggrin.gif.

Oh, and the upgrade path later to a 3930K or possibly IB-E.

3. More cache.
4. More RAM.
There are few reasons to get 3770K over 3570K
1. You need hyperthreading for video encoding/folding or similar tasks when it's useful.
2. More cache.
3. It seems like 3770K generally clock better/better binned chips... BUT I wouldn't pay $100 alone for this since a chance to get a terrible clocking 3770K is about the same.
Also I don't think you can build mATX build with LGA2011...

Thanks Dexel

They do have the Rampage IV Gene which is pretty much the LGA 2011 version of the Maximus V Gene. it is $80 more and then the 3820 is $85 more so about $165 more for an LGA board and 3770k equivelant chip. that won't overclock as well or as easily.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131805&Tpk=rampage%20IVgene

and after looking and seeing on Tom's hardware's review of the 3770k the largest significant gain is %50 in Adobe Premier, which is what i use when not gaming, but most else doesn't have that much of a difference. 10% overall

I mean it's kinda cool to have an LGA2011 but right now the word cool would prob be better spent on cooling smile.gif

I guess i should stick to my guns and save me some money. Since I don't Edit for a living and this isn't a workstation I can handle encoding at 2/3's the speed when messing with premier specifically.

I'llpurchase a plextor M5P and call it a day lol.

you guys have helped me quite a bit and I am very greatful for it.

I'll i'll stick with the i5 for now Build including peripherals is around $1700 now and only because i bought the cards and monitor used it would have hit $2000 already else. I think it should be a nice portable gaming system for tournaments and won't have any problems keeping up with other's systems for a while. except for bench marks of course lol

by the time IB-E comes I'll probably want to build a Workstation Build for Tri and Quad card configurations.

Thanks again for your advice.

No prob! I completely understand. When I first built Red Rover as a standard build, I wanted LGA 2011 but couldn't afford it and a vid card in the configuration I wanted. So I settled on a Maximus V Gene and a 2550K. 2 weeks later Ivy Bridge came out rolleyes.gif. Anyway, it was still an excellent, very fast computer that more than handled my needs. I just recently had an opportunity to do some big upgrades that I've been wanting for a while and an awesome wife who helped me facilitate the swap thumb.gif.
