Should I trade my Z77/3770K for X79/3820?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My dad has offered to trade his X79 ASUS Sabertooth and I7 3820 for my Asus P8Z77-V LE Plus and 3770K. I know it's almost a downgrade as far as the CPU goes but with Ivy Bridge-E on the horizon it is a bit appealing to me. Factor in the better motherboard (I love the Sabertooth boards) and I'm strongly considering it. Opinions appreciated smile.gif

I would say go for it so long your willing to spend the big cash for an -E series chip.
