I'm debating whether which one to get. The 3770k plus the motherboard will be cheaper but the 3820 will have a better upgrade path and better motherboard.

More about : 3770k 3820

Hello thesh0gun;

Still no Ivy Bridge E showing up on the Intel Roadmap. How much money is Sandy Bridge E making for Intel?

Are you looking at anything besides CFX/SLI? Like Tri-SLI or Quad CFX?

For gaming most upgrading is done with just GPU upgrades, keeping the CPU/MB.
By the time that strategy won't hold up you'll probably be wanting to upgrade platforms anyway.

If you live near a microcenter the 3820 cost the same or less then a 3770k
