  1. I'd say it depends on the price. 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.
  2. i have a microcenter near me but i have noticed that the I7-3820 is cheaper than I7-2700
  3. 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)
