Well to be honest, spending a $100 more for a better platform is well worth the money. I'm not looking to save a little i wan't the best option possible.
Thanks for the reply
It's not just $100-$200 more for the 2011 socket motherboard; the processor choices for IB-E are probably going to be ~$600 for the enthusiast, and ~$1,000 for the extreme chip (if pricing parallels SB-E chips). I don't count the 4-core enthusiast chip because I'm not sure of the purpose.
Do you really have a need for a 6-core/12-thread processor? If you do, then maybe look into the i7-3930K. If not, then get the i7-2600K with a good z68/p67 motherboard, a good cooler, and overclock it to +4.5GHz. If you can wait a month or two (or until summer, who knows), build it around 1155 socket IB (will use less power than Sandy, and might be a smidgen faster).
