Microcenter has had some terrific deals on cpus if you live near one. Either one of those would provide excellent gaming; go for the one with the best board/cpu combo price. Pavelow30 October 23, 2012 12:29:35 AM i have a microcenter near me but i have noticed that the I7-3820 is cheaper than I7-2700 Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer NoUserBar a b à CPUs October 23, 2012 1:38:16 AM The E version stands for Enthusiast, it is supposed to be more powerful than the non E versions in the same generation. So the i7-3820 is the better version. Even more so that it is cheaper. But... Is that E overclockable? If it's not, maybe it's not better. Sandy Bridge-k can over-clock well to even higher performance. I'm not sure if E without the K can overclock. But if you don't want to overclock then the E would be better. (unless it can overclock like the i7-2700k then it is definitely better) Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources : ForumAMD vs Intel : which is better for MULTI -TASKING?
