I was looking to build a system with one of these two processors. I was leaning towards the 3820 because it is socket LGA 2011, which should have further compatibility in the future. The i7-3820 on x79 has quad channel memory support as well.

What is the performance difference between the two? Which is better for multitasking/gaming?

I7 3770k is a better processor, it been discussed before and the ivy brigde have aslight advantage over the 3820,

But if u have the attention of the upgradeability in near future, take the i7
3820 processor,
So u can upgrade to ivy bridge-e that i do not know if it have 8 core or 8 core with 2 disable core.

If u work is that demanding it might be useful for 2011 , if it not, get the ivy bridge.
But it always good to have extra horsepower if u have the money.

No matter what cpu you choose as long as its an i7 you'll be able to have any setup you want even the original i7's could handle a gtx titan sli with no apparent "bottleneck" but me personally go for the 2011 socket over the 1155
