For gaming its not a huge upgrade specially if its a highly clocked i7 but the IPC benefits from the 3600X, 3700X and 3900X will eat through the 3770K easily.
And if you dont need the upgrade why not hold out and upgrade your graphics card instead?
Unless theres something you need cores and processing power for e.g Rendering.
At which point you are only looking at 3700X and above.
The 3770K is just below a 7600K so wherever you see a 7600K assume your chip does just worse than that.
You could also just look at any 8700K reviews and assume the 3600 comes in very close to that.
I think when the 8700K was being reviewed people actually included the 3770K
Productivity the 3700X is a big upgrade.
Gaming the 3600 is decent, the 3700X is an actual upgrade.
