When you're citing something, make sure it backs up your claims. That Creative Cow link compares the 980x vs. a couple of same gen Xeons. The i7-980x is also a LGA1366 chip, not a LGA2011 i7-3930k like has been recommended multiple times.

Build what you want, but you came here for advice. Just because that advice doesn't fit into your preconceived notions doesn't make it wrong.
