I7 3930k $549 is your "friend". Your absolutely right, you won't notice gains "gaming", but you'll see gains running Benchmarks going to a 6 core 12 thread 12mb Cache!!!
More importantly, it's the "best if the best" ;)

Before you pull the pin on that RAM check out the Corsair Platinums, don't get to hung up on the extremely high speeds, bearing in mind the Memory Controller of the CPU's limitations (1600 - 1866 MHz).

That 3930k should reach 4.2 - 4.4 Ghz without too much trouble !!

I hope to get a bit more than 4.4ghz with the 3930. I get 4.4 right now with the 3770,and no heat issues etc. and stable 24/7. We shall see what the 3930 brings. Thanks.
