  1. if its gaming a i5 will be enough, you don't need built in wifi as Ethernet will always be faster
  2. The main difference between an i5 and i7 is that the i7 has more threads and best suited when the user does video or photo editing. The i7 has 8 threads (hyperthreading) whereas the i5 has 4.

    What will you be doing other than gaming?

    My problem is my modem, router and main PC are on the bottom floor and the computer I will be building will be in my room up stairs.
