Default core i5 vs. i7- performance difference?

I am thinking of giving my ivy bridge mb,cpu and case to my bro (I really want up his performance and get him away from amd fx since the price is right)and get myself the following:

core i5 4670 (non-k)- I don't overclock and need to cost cut as much as possible
gigabyte z87x-ud4h mb- similar to what I have now but more expensive

total cost for both from newegg w/shipping and taxes: $498 cdn
(ships locally from mississauga,canada, 40 mins from where I live, so if I ordered on fri dec.20, I would have the parts monday dec. 23)

the question I have is for those who have had i7 and i5, is there much of a performance hit between say a 3770k i7 and a 4670 core i5? Please help.
