save some money and go with 3770k
unless you need massive amounts of ram or many pcie lanes .. or doing something 6c/12t required.

for example if you need to do quad sli or xfire. then 2011
or need 64gb ram or use heavy cpu intensive tasks that utilize multicores.

3770k is a solid processor can be oced easily generally out performs current 2011 processors in clock for clock performance. the hyper threading also adds to cpu intensive tasks.

but your going to be limited on memory you can however run higher clock speeds due to enhanced imc

and native pcie 3.0 support on ivy chips.
