Depends on what you are using the system for. Gaming, generally, the i5 is a better choice. Some games take advantage of HT of the i7, but they are few and far between.

If you will be mainly gaming, the i7 only performs un-noticably better, since it has a little more cache. The HT would only be utilized if you are doing a LOT of multitasking or running VM's or other applications that will use all the threads.

nice build btw

Than just stick with the i5. It won't be worth it to you to spend the extra $100 on the miniscule performance gain in gaming.
