Light-years I would say. When I had my 965 non BE I could everything on it with no lag, and it would OC 10% with the stock cooler, which is by far the noisiest I have seen in years. Going for a beefier graphics card will offset the difference between CPus. You might want a SSD as well, will make all the difference for running programs. 120/128GB ones are around 110-120$.
