For my dual core machine, if I run one copy at priority 10, then I get about 5% improvement while off it, and 15 to 35% improvement while on it. I noticed my second copy, which will run at priority 1 while on it, doesn't slow down NEARLY twice as much, so the speed gain is actually pretty accurate.
