alright guys
i need a Processor for heavy editing video & gaming

how about this : i7 3820 ? is it enough ?

i just bought MSI Big Bang XPower II and probably will run on 2-way gtx 780

OR just waiting for another LGA 2011 Processor (budget doesnt matter if waiting )

and about GTX 800s is better to wait this or just take 700s ??

Might look at the 4820K, it too is an i7 so Hyper Threading, specs look good, should be good with video editing, 780s would be great, the 800s are looking to be out 1st quarter of '14

Quad cores are a complete waste of money on LGA 2011. I don't even know why Intel bothers. In my opinion the i7 4930K is the best processor for LGA 2011.

Basically LGA 2011 is designed to bring workstation power to the desktop or to be the highest end of gaming machines. Or a combination of both. Everything about it costs more from the motherboards to the quad channel RAM to the CPUs. If it's a professional machine you use to make money it will pay for itself in sheer power though.

Think it depends on your needs and what your doing, and since there is no true quad channel DRAM, closest being 8 stick sets which simply have XMP set for 8 sticks (and cost more because it's more difficult to pair up 8 sticks that will play together,i.e testing takes longer than a 2, 3 or 4 stick set), any 4 stick set will run fine on X79
