from a perspective of necessity is why youd need the extra cores. large database querries, video editing and rendering, extreme graphic manipulation are prime examples of needing maximum processor power. 10% slower? 4.2GHz is 4.2GHx whether 3930k or 2700k they process at the same speed, but the 3930k uses six cores to do the processing instead of the four the 2700k utilizes. its efficiency of the utilization. since you are mentioning the "k" processors, it looks like you'll be overclocking as well. so make case air-flow, cpu heatsink and power supply choices that agree with what the "grand scheme" of the build is... look into builds that will be doing what your intentions are and pick your parts from those builds. once parts are "picked" find reviews of all those parts and find their relative usefulness to each other. and then you'll have a naughty rig, that fits your flair and needs..
