I'd recommend getting Sandy-E
It overclocks better, is cheaper.

And ivy is maybe 5 % faster on stock clocks.
Ivy -E is not worth it if you ask me. Id personally getc Sandy-E.
If you are not overclocking that hard, you might want to get the 4930k then.

EDIT:
If you want to get that just for gaming it's a major waste of money I might add :) unless the rest of your setup is equally ridiculous ^^

4930 and 3930 are pretty equal. The 4930 has a better memory controller but the 3930 typically seems to overclock better.

We really need to wait for bios and chipset maturity before anyone has a real idea of what an average overclock is.

an average 3930K on a push pull H100 will do ~4.7+
no one knows what an average 4930K will do on an H100.

either chip will be EPIC, especially if youre running a 120Hz screen and dual high end GPU's.

What will that rig cost in total?

I'd be getting it in terms of having it for a few years without any worries as well as streaming while playing. I have a 120hz monitor and a 4gb 680 to go with it, wasn't going to get another because I hear ridiculous things about SLI, but not sure what to do about that.

I have a 3930k oc@ 4.4ghz @1.35 volts. This thing is far ahead of the current handling capacity. Going higher is truly a waste. Unless you are a musician, graphics designer or do things of that nature then go for it. But if you are into just gaming, then this will do. To make things matter, I have 3 780s and Im @ 99% GPU usage with no CPU bottleneck.

Hope that answers your question.

i7 980x is still chewing through everything I throw at it....

6 cores are awesome... and BF3 shines on 6 cores.

so basically buy a 6 core intel (doesn't matter which one)
Don't buy the next game...

Hey noob, thanks man. I'm still thinking about the 4930k because it's out right now, and it's literally identical in price, if not cheaper. Do you find out that CPU bottleneck with benchmarks?

you won't be bottlenecked on the CPU at all... GPU will be the bottleneck.

there is unnecessary using that to be playing bf. except you are overclocker, then you are really need that's thing.
anyway, this is just my opinion.

For gaming Haswell is plenty but if you really want the E series that's your call. If you're upgrading from 3930k don't bother it's not worth it. If you're deciding between buying a 3930k or 4930k, go 4930k.

6 core intel processors rape 4 core ones in BF3. Look at these benchmarks: http://chipreviews.com/main-feature/main-news/frostbite-2s-limit-6-core-performance-in-battlefield-3/5/ [chipreviews.com]

If you are VERY serious about battlefield multiplayer, get a 6 core. Otherwise you are retarded and like to waste money. You wont notice any change at all in singleplayer games since they rely on GPU power not CPU.

I prefer 64 man servers, BF4 considered, and upgrading from an AMD processor. Will a 2nd 680 be absolutely necessary to "take advantage" of the power of the CPU?

Get the 4930k. I mean honestly it isn't all that expensive and will be top of the line until 8-core and DDR4 becomes affordable. It's a great investment unless you can afford paying 500$ for 16gb of DDR4 RAM once it's released (or more, look at DDR3 launch prices). And I expect 8-cores to be really expensive aswell. And all we know currently is that Haswell-E will have 8-core processors. But that doesn't mean the x930k will have it. I expect the x960x to have it.

With that said, for BF4 multiplayer the 6 core will be freaking amazing. Combine that with 2x 680s and you have NOTHING to worry about for the coming year or three.
One 680 will be amazing if you can live without MSAA (Honeslty, I don't mind the blur of FXAA and I honestly think it looks better. It has next to no performance hit aswell. MSAA just doesn't justify it's performance cost).

The only downside is that it's pretty much ONLY the Frostbite engine that is so amazingly programmed. Seriously, the tech people at DICE are worldclass. So you won't benefit from 6-cores in so many other games, no games even. And it's only multiplayer that gives you a benefit compared to 4-cores

So if you can live with the lacking features of the x79 platform, go for 6-core.

Considering between the Asus P9X79LE and the Asus Sabertooth. The Sabertooth is $100 more, and seems to have 4 6GB Sata ports as opposed to 2 for the P9X. It also has a feature that improves the caching on your hard drive if you also have an SSD. Worth it?
