Is it a new build, or you getting it for a steal? Can you elaborate on the specs? And Price. There have been 2 'revisions' let's say to the Core processor line since 1366.

go 1155 or 2011, depending on how much you wanna pay, 2011 being more expensive

For a new build I would go for a I7 2600k, or the cheaper I5 2500k, and maybe even the I5 2500 if you are not going to overclock your CPU... What will you use this build for? gaming? or?

Doesn't look like your on a budget, I'd go for the 3820 too with a pretty new P9X79 clutching it lovingly in it's arms. :)

Thats what I was thinking too ! Btw why is the 3820 SO CHEAP compared to the other LGA2011 Chipset?

One is the Extreme Edition, the other is unlocked with more cache. Both are 6 core, the 3820 is quad core.

Will this affect any major diffrences between the 6 and 4 cores?

I would not bother with 1336 it's a pretty old now. As other have said go with either socket 1155 or the new socket 2011.

For gaming, probably not (or not now). For video editing or rendering then the more the merrier, but that's a serious jump if your just a part time video maker for mom's DVD collection type. If you do it for a living or semi living, I'd get the extra cores. I'm thinking the 3820 will be fine and happy at it's new home.

If price isn't a problem, go 3930k. The Extreme only has 3MB more L3 cache. Then with the k over the 3820, you have an unlocked CPU if you need to squeeze more out.

Will it make a big diffrence? I rally dont want to spend much on the CPU but I really want the 3820.

A K version CPU will be unlocked so it will overclock higher than a CPU that is locked. Other than that I don't think there will be any HUGE differences.
