So so so many dependencies...
We still cannot see your rig in your sig. Follow Achilees instructions to get them to show.
As long as your at x16 2.0 you should have no pci-e bandwidth bottleneck. If at x8/x8 2.0 speeds you could have some limitaion.

I have both CPUs, its just that the 3930k is in my somewhat dedicated folding PC, and I'm extremely lazy when it comes to draining loops
I havent seen a comparison of 4 vs 6 core at that res. But here is one with the CPU intensive BF3 64p multiplayer. http://chipreviews.com/cpu/frostbite-2s-limit-6-core-performance-in-battlefield-3/3/
Huge difference in min FPS. Your larger res will be less CPU restricted, but not sure by how much. Also note BF3 multiplayer likes HyperThreading disabled.

Its more about how I have gotten so used to using the snap feature and such in windows with laying out different windows, its a little frustrating as I lost some functionality (I think) when I switched to nvidia surround. But I also love it in games.
Dont know which OS your using. Win 8 does not have full Surround support yet. Windows 7 does and the window snap feature works great with the OS.

Are you talking about Rising Storm? How does its multiplayer compare to BF3. Graphics & gameplay? Been looking for a good WW2.
