just like grabbing a slightly larger power supply is a good decision(running a corsair GS800 myself) grabbing an i7 is smart... I upgraded from a 775 socket q9400 to a 1366 socket i7 950...at the time I could have purchased a 1156 socket i5 system for much less, but looking back now everyone that went 1156 socket i5 upgraded, and I am still maxing out basically every game made still after years with basically no upgrading other then SSD.
