Default The i7 3930k vs i7 2700k

Going to purchase a cpu in the next week or 2 (new build) and was originally going to get the x79 2011 socket i7 3930k, but after looking through reviews (intense and quick overviews) it didnt perform as id hoped. basically no game makes use of the 2 extra cores on there.

The 2700k kept coming out the same if not 10% slower. not bad for a 200 price difference though. Plus the motherboards are about 50 - 60 + more expensive also.

Has anybody had any personal experience with the 3930k or the 2700k before that could give me a better idea??

Cheers
