I have seen quite a few threads on the same topic but most times the answers say "it depends on what the op wants to do" hence the reason why I've created this question
Am using a lynnfield i7 870 2.93 ghz with a dp55kg intel mobo (12 gigs 1333mhz ram -2x4, 2x2)
I am looking to upgrade since I do a bit of after effects and premiere pro work and want something faster.
The general opinion is 3930k is better for memory intensive tasks while no noticeable difference while gaming
Gaming is not a problem (I play 2 games Red Alert 3 and Diablo 3 and my HD7950 on my current config is more than enough)
So stepping up from my current config, will the 3770k be a great difference (similar clock speeds, same 8mb cache, same dual channel mem) or wikk the 3930k be better (quad channel mem, 12mb cache, 64gig mem option)

Please help guys

Well, if you're doing a lot of After Effects, and Premiere Pro, then consider the 3930K. If you're not, consider the 3770K.
