I currently have an i7 3770. I am looking to build a new rig with a GTX 1080, 16GB ram, new MB, etc. I have done some comparisons, and I am not seeing a HUGE difference performance wise (other than temp, which I can control easily) between the newer i7's and mine. Is there a major difference, or should I keep my current processor? I do not overclock, btw, so no worries on that.
