Two observations and a recommendation:

1. You are a gamer that has money to spend, but does not want to flush it down the drain
2. You are planning to OC

So, before you get swayed to the SNB-E/X79 camp, I would highly recommend you read a review for the upcomming Intel Ivy Bridge processor at AnandTech: AnandTech - The Ivy Bridge Preview: Core i7 3770K Tested. For the price of a 3820 and the performance of 3930k, I would wait; plus look at the power consuption numbers.
