    I was planning on getting a Ivy Bridge Core i7 3770K. However, Sometimes special deals popup. For example, Microcenter had the Sandy Bridge Core i7 2600K for ~$199.99 for a short period of time. Unfortunately I was out of town during the sale so I couldnít buy it on a strange network or get to the store to pick it up in time.

    But yeah I would definitely take a ~$200 Core i7 2600K over a ~$313 Ivy Bridge Core i7 3770. I hope the deal pops up again.

    Anyway, I decided on a Sandy Bridge-E Core i7 3930K instead at ~$499 but thatís just me. If you can get a good deal on the Core i5 2500K then its probably a better deal overall.

    If you go with the 3770 and want all if its features you also need an Z77 motherboard.

    I have a 3770k and a 2500k and if I set you down in front of them you would not be able to tell which one you were using. There is just not that much difference.
    Asus M8Z77-V Deluxe
    Intel 3770K
    G-Skill 1600 16G
    Corsair H100
    EVGA 670 GTX
    2 Corsair Force 3 120G (Raid 0)
    2 x Seagate 1T 6G
    2 Samsung SyncMaster T260HD Monitors
    Thermaltake Level 10 UGK
    Silverstone Olympia OP1000 1000W
    Windows 8

    Never argue with idiots, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
