I would say both are overkill in almost all parts except the cheap optical drive. But if you can afford it, then go for the i7 as the i5's 1156 platform has some limitations comparatively. But it is a hell of a gaming platform itself.
Maybe fill out the Build Advice form in my signature, and we'll have a better base to make our decisions off of.
