If you want poor scaling, go ahead.

There is an edit button too.

It also has more upgrade options beyond 3820 which is just as fast as the 2700k. It has more to offer imho. I didn't like the idea that if I bought the 2600k or 2700k that there aren't many options for improvement with the platform.
