The 3930K, they both run on the same architecture but the 3930K is clocked 1ghz higher.

An example:
If a cpu can render say a 3d movie in 10 min at a stock of 3ghz.

We bump that 3ghz up to 4ghz the 3d movie can be rendered in 7 min.

You don't need a 750w, a good 520w would be the best choice. How about a seasonic?

could you give us an update? What did you end up buying , and how were you satisfied !

I am having the same question, should I go with Xeon for stability or i7 for speed ?! It seems that most professional workstation rigs go with Xeon!
