I have been in love with the i7 980x when it was called the i9 in beta and so happy it fits my x58 motherboard. Honestly, that's it - it fits any x58 1366 size motherboard and I don't see the need to max out credit for a motherboard when the CPU is already $1000.

Unless you are going to do some rocket science and pump up several 30" 2560 - 1680 monitors or change the world. I would go with something that does the job for what it's worth.

When people lose sight, they pray for better vision. Even though the path of ignorance was their choice, they believe it to be an outer entity like karma or bad luck - in thus believing an outer cause will cure it. You want change? Stop throwing dirt in your eyes to attain mercy for looking weak.
