I bought in 2008 core 2 duo E8400 instead Quad core to save money and faced bottleneck in Battlefield 3, ( i upgrade from 4870 ATI to 7970 ATI).
I am afraid one year later other games ll ask for more than six cores.
Referred to the prices i want to put below and don't ask me how i get these offers plz.
Core i7-3960x (598$) + GA-X79-UD3 (329$) = 927$
i will not use SSD or maybe later cheap 60 GB SSD Corsair , i have Sata 2 HD 0.5T WD

OR OR OR OR OR OR

Core i7-3770k + Intel MB(1155) + 180GB Intel SSD 520 = 646$

OR OR OR OR OR OR OR

Core i7-3930K (C2 Step) with 180GB Intel SSD 520 series (561$) + GA-X79-UD3 (329$) = 890$

I will have to borrow some money for getting choice 1 or 3 , but i am afraid i will blame my self if a new pro game as BF3 recommend 6 cores or above.
How Differ i would be facing now if i had Core 2 Quad with my new 7970 ATI vs my E8400?

The Core2Quads are still heavy hitters and will play BF3 fine with a decent graphics card. The 3960x is overkill, it's only marginally more performant than the 3930k so unless you're going for pure bragging rights its not worth it. The 3930k however is quite nice

I recommend the following

1. 3930k

2. Mushkin Chronos Deluxe / OCZ Vertex 3 SSD. Far cheaper than the Intel SSDs, great warranty, no realistic performance difference and half the price. The 240GB Chronos Deluxe is $229 right now at some places and is one of the best performing SSDs out there.

3. Asus P9X79 Deluxe motherboard (Asus X79 boards are sweet)

4. Radeon HD 7970/ NVidia GeFroce GTX 680

This leaves enough room to add a second 7970/680 at a later date

3770k -->after Tax and Transport 220$

3930k -->after Tax and Transport 358$

3960x -->after Tax and Transport 598$

3930k have 6 cores but better than 3770k as new 22nm ivy bridge? i have got 7970 ATI Gigabyte OC , if i am going to the 3930i iwll go for 60 GB SSD as , Cheap Corsair ................. The point i am trying to tell u - with listing prices - i am able to have around 60% or Intel market prices due to special deal, but if i am going to 3960x (depend on feedback's here) , i ll not buy a SSD cause of lack fund ( i don't know how much i ll lose performance without SSD) .
Finally the main offer i have is 3 peaces of Intel (i7-3770k + DZ77GA-70K + 180 GB SSD 520) for 646$ after Tax and Transport as One Package - cann't chose or drop part of last package offer.
