  1. If we're talking faster, I would assume the i7 is the fastest...but if you're trying to be cost effective, well that's another question
  2. i7 is faster--as mentioned its all down to budget--the i5-2500k is probably the best price to performance wise

    Hi bhouman :) ! Well I think that you have really guessed it already,but you just want to make sure ;) . Core i7 will be the best for all ;) . You can have the LGA 1155,the now technology or go back to the LGA 1156 technology if you can find a bargain that is ;) . If I was you I would go with a LGA 1155 core i7 2600 & you will enjoy the benefits of using it ;) . I have :) . Have a good day :) . One more thing,I have all of the above plus E8500 & E8600 also. The Core 2 Duo is okay,but you can easily tell the difference in booting up & the chipset technology if you try both the Core 2 Duo & the Core i7 processors. Core 2 Duo is slower & I have noticed with the chipsets,that Vista operating system (also windows 7 which I have dual booted) works better on the Core i7 cpu (or Core i5 cpu) & associated chipsets then the Core 2 Duo & associated chipsets ;) .
