Do you see much of a performance increase? What types of things do you do, and how big of a difference did it make?
Nope, don't see any increase in performance yet, machine still feels the same, but it was a free upgrade to the latest tech, so I am not complaining.
the main thing I do most of the time is watch movies and TV shows on the PC. But I do play games, like Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, and Diablo 3.
Do some transcoding here and there for my iPad, this is where the CPU comes in handy, seeing all 8 threads at 100% transcoding the files like crazy.
My little brother upgraded his 2600K to a 3770K yesterday for free as well since he doesn't want to have a slower PC than me, lol.
