Really depends on what you plan to use the machine for.

Also, you need to see the fine print. E.g. hyperthreading. Some Core i5 products have this feature, some dont. AFAIK, the Core i5 750 does not have hyper-threading, but it does have four physical cores. OTOH, the dual-core Core i5s do have hyper-threading.

What that means is that no Core i5 has more than four cores, physical or simulated. So, the Core i5 will not be as quick under multi-threaded work loads as i7.

Also, an overclocked core i5 can probably perform better than a stock i7, but an overclocked i7 will beat the hell out any i5.

If you are into gaming or serious video encoding stuff or are generally looking for a high end system, I'd say go for an i7. If you are looking for mainstream, the i5 will be the replacement for the current C2D machines.

In that case, get the best i5 you can afford.

Based on what you have said so far, it sounds to me that you want something like this:
Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-760 Lynnfield 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80605I5760

Note, you can't buy from that site in the UK. I just always go to it when looking at parts because I know my way around it.

If they are the same price, grab the 760. They are basically the same chips, the 760 just has a slightly higher stock frequency.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
