So I just bought the EVGA X79 and need a LGA 2011 CPU and wasnt sure what to get, I was looking into the i7 3820k but after reading lots of reviews I became un-sure if that is what I want. I would use it for heavy programming with some 3d models and gaming. Any sugestions on what would be a good one?3820k 3930k? or none of these?
thanks for the help!!

You just bought a mobo randomly without knowing what CPU you want? Wow, I wish I had that kind of money.
Anyway, the only worthwhile CPU on X79 is the 3930K.
Well I knew I was gona get the 3820 or 3930 and the mobo was on sale for 150 usualy 220 on newegg. So 3930 should be the one to go?
Yup, if you wanted a 4 core you should have bought a LGA1155 system. The 3770K is superior to 3820 - 3930K is the only reason to go for X79.
