http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/836?vs=523 shows that the 4770k basically destroys the 3820. So that's an easy choice. This September 11th the 4820 ivybridge-e should come out, will that even out the bench marks or will the haswell and it's architecture still dominate? I have about a $1200 budget, and I can build a fine 4770k or 4820 build, but if the 4820 doesn't improve the benchmarks much, I'll just go with the 4770k. I'm planning on using it primarily as a dev machine with some linux VMs, but since I"m limited in budget, I really can't spend more than $350 on the chip.
