Best CPU I can buy. Money doesn't matter, so I don't need a cheaper option.

Looking at:

Intel Core i7-990X Extreme Edition

Just get an i5-3570K and a High End GPU.

You don't need the most expensive CPU like the 3960X or 990X.

Core 2 Duo's/Quads are still powerful enough to run the latest games.

Simple.......rather than relying on our one-liners (as good as they always are, etc, etc) for so much money.......why not browse 10 reputable websites & buy the 'most expensive'.

....though, maui67's choice does seem very tempting ;)
