All of the 600 series i5 processors have HT, turbo, and built in graphics. None of the i3s have turbo.

Well, with technology advancing the way it is, it's hard to make it "future proof"
but A high end i5 would be worth it

It's simple numbers really. Do you want to spend about $120 or $210 for your CPU? The i5 750 and 760 are true quad-cores and great performers. The i3 530 and 540 are both relatively economical, great performers, and can overclock very well. The i5 6xx series though, unless you need the integrated graphics for some reason, are really overpriced for what they are.

EDIT: Internet seemed to cut off for a minute or two here. An i5 760 is a great choice and should be a strong performer.
