    Sandy Bridge-E potential question


      I am looking at a motherboard and CPU upgrade. How much more peformance do you expect from the Sandy Bridge-E series as compared to the i7-2600k? It looks as though the 4-core i7-3820 ($294) has limited overclock. However the 6-core i7-3930K ($583ish) is unlocked. Thoughts?


      My system is working ok now, but I want more speed as I am beginning to work with 1080p 3D material. My current system is i7-860, evga p55 micro, 8gb, gtx 460. It performed relatively poorly on the ppbm.
