3930k hands down. they are about the same speed in the end and for video usage, its a total beast. the drawback is that you would have to get a good x79 board like the gigabyte x79 up4 to use it
I thought Intel was a good brand? It looks so cool with the skull on the Southbridge lol. I have the Gigabyte X79 on an 3820 I use as a sql server for customers. So it's down to the two mobos I have....
Gigabyte X79-UD3 or Intel (brand) X79SI for the mono? The memory is a no brainer just gonna cost me about $130.00 :P
