I lol'd at the LGA-LEET bit (LGA 1337). It's actually LGA 1336 and LGA 1156, so almost. The 1336 socket is arguably more future proof while the 1156 also carries very modern processors while also being current, and I'd say quite fine for the future. The 980X is only on 1336, so if you ever want to upgrade to that (or perhaps newer processors that come out in the future for the 1336 socket), you probably want to get a 1337 i7. A good choice for that would be the i7 930. 1156 is just slightly more mainstream, with options such as the i5 (A great processor for its price, in my opinion).
