i have had my eyes on the i7 3930k for some time now. I just wonder if in reality its little brothers the i7 2700k, i7 2600k, and i5 2500k r actually faster at gaming. i have been researching for a solid answer but people tend to lean both ways. I am not concerned with the price of the mobo and cpu of the 3930k. I just would be a little mad at myself if i spend 600$ on a cpu that turned out to be slower than a 350$ cpu gaming wise. I play bf3 and skyrim. Really it would be great if anyone who games has had the reg i7 2000k series upgraded to the i7 sb-e 3930k. Or just any kind of proof of what is truly the fastest gaming cpu on the market. I am not wasting money on the i7 3960 for my research has lead me to believe that would be a very poor way to throw away a grand on one pc component. I would have prob pulled the trigger already on the i7 3930k but i want to wait for c-2 stepping, not that i think it would really make any difference to me. I am open to all opinions, facts, and benchmarks. If i say something that sounds stupid or incorrect feel free to correct me because i am not smug and realize that i am still a beginner at the whole pc building world.
