The 3820 and 4820k aint that expensive for an i7, they any good?


You should get at least a 3930k or 4930k if you buy LGA 2011. Otherwise, just get an i7 for LGA 1150.

Aren't there supposedly new processors and Ram that are being released around summertime that are going to boost performance by quite a bit? So wouldn't upgrading now just be a bit of a waste, when you can grab a new motherboard that supports that new technology around July?

I'm just going to recommend saving up for Summer, or buy a really great monitor

I have a great monitor and a terrible monitor.
A good 27" monitor is what i need but they cost the lot.

Video card is fine, upgrade the processor. You don't really need to get an i5/i7 unless you have the budget to do so. Getting an 8320/8350 would be fine, and cheaper.

Could always invest in some really good headphones, or a kick ass speaker system. Maybe another set of USB 3.0 front connectors.

I'm actually looking into that myself. I don't really like the idea of just having 6 USB 3.0 connections altogether. 4 of them get completely used in the back and really limit the amount of stuff that can be plugged in, so your left with 2 in front(pending on the case) which barely covers a set of headphones and a game pad.

The 8350 or 8320 are solid options. And you can always OC either of them. And save up that money. Newegg as a promo for a 8320 for around $139.99. Do that, and be happy.
