I'm trying to decide between a 3770 with a z77 mobo or 3820 with a x79 mobo.

I just purchased a Evga 680 SC.

I don't know much about the technical side of it, but I hear that the PCI lanes for the z77 might limit it.
==================

I'm not sure on a mobo for the z77 yet if I went that route...but if I went with a x79..I think I would go with this one because of the bang for the buck: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138346

I'm mostly a gamer, light video editing, I run heavy mods at times though, and I am a musician who records if that helps any.

Any input would be appreciated.
