There is something I learned through the years as an teenager, all ways buy the best of the best and then you don't have to worry about it for a few years

Good point, I'm not ready to spend U$1k for a processor, no matter how fast it is

So you say that an i5 is basically the same as an i7? No really big differences?

Depends on which i5 and i7 your talking about.

The i5 750 and its replacement the i5 760, place higher in some benchmarks and reviews than the lower end i7 8xx and i7 9xx.

I'm sure some people will argue the point.

Here's a site where benchmarks suites are used to rank the various CPUs.
AnandTech CPU Benchmark

Some of the differences would not be noticed with non-benchmark usage.

Factor in the price, and you can decide for yourself.

That is a great processor.

That motherboard is high end with alot of extras, if you think you'll use them it's fine, if not then look for a more reasonably priced one.
