Asus maximus 4-z vs rampage 4 extreme

My grandfather wants an enthusiast pc and has about 2000 to spare, so should I get him an 1155 2600k or an i7-3930k? Also would the rampage 4 extreme be any noticiable upgrade with the 3930k with the i7-2600k and the maximus 4-z?

He won't see any difference between the 2 system if your grandpa does web browsing, games or any other basic task.

The only difference he will see is heavy video encoding/decoding/editting or tasks that benefits heavily on high core counts/threads and of course benchmarking purposes to show off the system using Sandybridge E.
