Im in a bit of a dilemma. I built 3 cpu rigs and I hesitate wich one I will buy in a near future. Im also asking myself the difference between ram (2400 vs 1866) ( wich one should I go with and is there any speed difference) and the difference between the 6 core Intel vs the 8 core AMD.

With the unlocked of the multiplier on the Intel® Core™ i7-3930K faster RAM is not needed to overclock. So than it comes down to the performance difference vs. price. While there is a performance difference with faster memory than DDR 3 1600 it is very small and most people woud say it isnt worth the added cost. I personally would go with the G. Skill Ares.

One other thing is that in order to reach the other speeds most memory manufacturers are jacking up the voltage on the RAM (Kingston runs their at 1.65v). Now since the 2nd and 3rd generation Intel Core processors only support memory at 1.5v ±5%(1.425v to 1.575v) and running memory at higher voltage can lead to damage of the memory controller I advise that you save your money and just get some good DDR 3 1600.

Well, If you're on a budget, (Which you dont seem to be. lol.) then teh 8350 would be the one to go for. Theres nothing wrong with it, I have one in my system ranked up to 5Ghz on an air cooler. XD But if you have the money to splash around with a bit then DEFINATLY the 3930k! Thats the CPu i plan on putting in my next build when I can afford it. But either way you go unless you're literally going to be number crunching all teh time the real world performance wont be any different. they will both do what you want with reinforcement.
