Well the 990 is for socket 1336 and the 3770 is for 1155. I think you choice comes down to which board you are getting.

According to this benchmark: http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/cpu-charts-2012/-04-3DMark11,3157.html

They are neck and neck.

Either would be good, but the 3770k is my pick. TDP is a lot lower 77w (3770k) vs. 130w (990x).

The real comparison should be the i7 3960x since it is also carries the "Extreme" moniker.

Hmmm... good point. The lower power consumption would save money on

electric.

For servers, yes, for desktops, no. Intel Core i7 3960X is the top in benchmarks. Like I said, the 990x is at par with the 3770k
