So you may need an old CPU to update the BIOS before you can use a new CPU

Hope it does not work that way

The new EVGA X79 Dark will work without a BIOS update EVGA made sure of that
Ah, thanks.

If you can see yourself doing a lot more 3d work, rendering and streaming than gaming, then I'd definitely recommend the 4930k. The extra cores and even the quad channel RAM design should be able to help speed up those tasks a lot, something that the 4770k doesn't have.

Otherwise, if you spend most of your time just playing games then the 4770k would be much better value. It should perform on-par (or even slightly slower, depending on whether you play CPU-intensive games such as MMO's) with the 4930k. Even if you casually do those other things you've mentioned, or occasionally, the 4770k should still be a better buy if you're looking for the best bang for buck I'd say.
