I'm gathering the parts for a new build and I'm stuck on two different configurations.

The difference is either going with an i5 760 + EVGA P55 SLI mobo, or an i7 930 + EVGA X58 SLI LE mobo.

All other components are pretty much the same, Corsair 650TX power, EVGA GTX 460 1GB, G.Skill 4GB Ripjaw RAM, etc.

The i5 build comes to about $1100 total, and the i7 comes to about $1200 total.

Which one is better bang for buck, as well as better future-proofing? (Another question, will the 650TX be enough for SLI 460's?)

Go with the i7 if you are going to overclock. That thing has great potential. The 650TX is enough for sli.
