I'm looking to run a couple benchmarks before I swap, though, so that I can put some numbers to the actual performance improvement.

What kind of benchies should I run?

BF:BC2 is a definite because of how much time I spend on my PC playing it.

Other than that, I was thinking:

Starcraft 2
SuperPi
Cinebench 11.5
3DM11
3DMVantage

...any other good ones?
Don't even bother with SuperPi. AMD CPUs don't do well on that intel- compiled, outdated software.

I went Sandy Bridge solely because my parents wanted a new computer and were willing to put up $400 for it. I gave them my old Phenom II Quad system (Phenom II 840T, 790X-UD4, DDR2), and used their money to get what I have in my sig rig.

Do I notice a difference? I only play StarCraft II, and yes I do "notice" a difference, though I was completely happy with my previous system.
