Pointless question is pointless; you can look at prices on your own time.Unlocked multipliers make OC wonderfully easy...I still dont understand why someone would buy a locked CPU and OC via BLK when a much easier (universally supported) feature already exits.
Are -K skus really that much more expensive?
Kind of goes back to my "programs dont program for because gamers dont have" point. Once they do things will get better over time. Now beings Microsoft is behind DX12 that means enough money to move heaven and earth for a change. I rely on the ago old saying about guns. Its better to have a gun not need one than to need a gun and not have it. Given the small cost difference I say go for the 5820K. Its better to have the cores than need them.How much is DX12 going to change that? My guess is not as much as people are expecting it to. Before we can even discuss that, you have to convince gamers to give up on Windows 7 and upgrade to Windows 10 which is a prerequisite for DX12.
