Right now (April, 2012), this is probably the best choice when building a high-performing-but-not-overly-expensive computer.
It's priced close to the previous incumbent, the 2600k, and mobo prices are converging as well.
It really destroys everything you can imagine, and keeping asking for more.
The one thing I would say is that Intel's X79 - your only choice if your going with Intel processors today - is not, by a wide margin, as good a chipset is i7 3xxx are as processors. I mean, support to USB 3 and Sata III is dismal, to say the least.
But that is another story...
