What difference are you going to feel? The strings will be metal. The wound ones will be a little rougher than the plain strings. If you change the 3rd string to wound it will be rougher also.

Seriously though, they'll be heavier. If you tune to the same pitch you will notice a lot more tension in the strings. You might need to adjust the truss rod.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

Given that you have already purchased these strings, how about you put them on and find out?

These types of questions are generally asked prior to purchase, but since you now have to ability to answer your own question why waste time here?

Try them out yourself, then try the setup thread in EG when you discover you need a truss rod and intonation adjustment from jumping up three gauges.
