    I'd go with the i5 - you won't see much difference in gaming with the i7

    If you're looking for improved fps and detail settings then the GPU is more important

    The i5and i7 differ in that i7s hav hypertheading - most games will not benefit from this, though this may change when DirectX 12 comes in to play. For now though, better to spend your money on a better GPU
