The new Intel i7 3930K processor (new socket Lga2011) is it good to run chess software like Fritz, Houdini, Stockfish & friends?

This month I will build a computer to play chess and want to buy the best parts. I have to spend 2000 euros. What do you recommend?

Capablanca the i7 3930K is the best CPU for the money and for computer chess you can buy right now. The i7 3960k is a little bit faster but a lot more expense. If you keep waiting there will always be a faster processor waiting in the winds to come out but right NOW if you build a system around an i7 3930k you will be ahead of 99% of the people with similar software (meaning GUI's engines, books, etc) The next generation of Intel the Ivy Bridge still an estimated five to six months away from this one (the Sandy Bridge i7 3930K) and the Ivy Bridge platform is expected to offer slight improvements over Sandy Bridge in terms of performance. It won't be till 2013 that Intel is expected to introduce the Shark Bay platform that promise some interesting new features as well as yet another performance bump with the 22nm architecture.

If you can afford the best (Intel X79) motherboard today is the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme. RAMs could be any brand and 16 GB is enough for your chess needs.
