Mostly i will go with i7 extreme processor, i have 3 options but i may go with the cheapest of the 3 instead going with the most expensive one if it will be overkill and i don't need to waste that much money, so this processor will not be a difficult decision anyway.

The i7 Extreme Edition (6-core i7) is by far the most expensive Core i7 CPU, so when you say that you may go with the "cheapest" one because you don't need to waste money, you're kind of contradicting yourself here.  If your priority is saving money and you do not know how much the Extreme Edition would be better, you should be going with a quad-core CPU.

Ok, the 3 options are:

i7-3930k

i7-3960

i7-3970

The first one is about $570, so it is sure expensive, but the last 2 are over $1000 slightly, so it is like 3930 model is around the half price, this is the cheaper of the three anyway.

i7-3770K is around $330, that is about $240 cheaper than i7-3930K, for many it is a huge differnce or savings, but for me it is not a big deal, if that i7-3770K is much better than i7-3930K then i will forget i7-39xx model and go with i7-3770K, but why those i7-39xx model too much overpriced? What is the reason of that high price?
