I agree with the i5. the 760 is a good model. Currently, any processor or $300 is definitely not good bang for buck. Actually, I personally don't think any processor over $200 is worth it's price for the performance.
Anyway, the i5 is a good model. The only thing it is lacking is triple channel memory, a full 16 pci-e planes and hyperthreading.. Nothing of a big deal.
