I keep reading there is only a slight advantage to 3930k and for the extra money it cost it isnt worth it. I use my computer for Everything with the majority of it games and web. I didnt know if i made the right choice

But if it's not going to affect your budget for other components why not? It may be complete overkill but hey, if you got the money.

3930K, 6 cores and 12 threads, that's why.

Very few games make significant use of more than two cores and web browsing was already a largely trivial task several years ago so for your two primary uses, the i7-3930X is completely overkill. An i5-3570k would have been just about as fast in most cases.

But by having a 3930k he's got mad internet cred
