Default New upgrade..thoughts?

hey guys,

I'm upgrading my gaming system (current specs below) and i'm wondering how this system will perform compared to me previous build.

Current:

Intel core i3 2120
Asus P8Z68-V LX
Corsair Vengence 8 GB 1866MHZ
WD 1.5 TB HD 5.9K RPM
Thermaltake 750W SLI PSU
AMD HD 6850

Upgraded:

intel core i7 3820
ASUS Rampage IV gene
8 GB Corsair Vengence 1866MHZ (will be adding 8Gb more in the near future)
WD 1.5TB HD (will be adding 2x segeate momentus XT 500GB in raid 0)
AMD HD 7850 OC edition (will be CFX them in the future)
Thermaltake 750W SLI PSU

I know it's all over the internet that it's not worth going for a i7 3820 but i like the platform so i can't seem to change my mind on the matter.

i will be using the system for heavy gaming and Vmware workstation with multi Os's both server and Client for my MCITP Enterprise admin.
