If money is no object, the i7, all day (I'm assuming that you're talking about a Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge i7).

Do you have a mb yet? What is your primary purpose? If gaming the 3570 may be the best. I have a 8150 and am satified with it. Also have 2 i5 2500ks. They are faster but the 8150 is not a slouch!

Any i3, i5, i7, or any of the FX CPU's along with the Phenom II's would easily do that.

But yes, the 3570K is extremely fast.

It's not just the CPU that will make it take 8 seconds for your documents to open up quickly, it's the application and your hard drive speed. I have an SSD (on of, if not the fastest in the world) and a 3570k overclocked to 4.7GHz and it STILL takes a couple seconds to open a basic word document, only because of the application. Today's hardware is faster than today's software.
