With the money you would save from a 3930k, you could buy a really nice SSD if you don't have one already!
i live in western NY, so there isn't one of those near me... there are no real specialty stores for this type of stuff in my area at all that aren't privately owned (the prices are ridiculous, so i don't bother with them) ... there used to be a compUSA but that closed 6 years ago. money isn't too much of an issue for me as far as building a new PC is concerned, i just don't want to have to do it too frequently. hence why i went with mostly top of the line parts, i was actually considering getting an i7-3970X Extreme but given the difference in power it wasn't worth it for me ... but don't think i don't appreciate your input, because i do.
that being said, is that you recommending me getting a newer one or is the one i have suffice?Edited by DasMuse - 3/30/13 at 6:19pm
