How do you feel now, with your new Z77 system? Is there any visible performance or something?
As of now the only noticeable difference I can tell is it boots way faster. From the point I press the power button until I see windows is so much faster than on my old X58A-UD3R. Other than that I haven't had a chance to play any games yet and tooling around in windows seems about the same. Honestly, I don't expect too much of a difference from my old set up, maybe a few more FPS in games.
I really didn't need to upgrade. my i7-930 setup was plenty fast but I jumped on a cheap 2600k and inevitably had to build a new system around it. I really want to get 5ghz out of it but with the limited tweaking I did last night it might be harder than I thought. Regardless, I'm really happy with the z77-UD5H.
