My System Specs

Default

My vote is for the i5. Given your uses I would likely leave the 9800 out of the system and just use integrated. Sli is not something worth the time/money/effort for you(pretty much just for gaming). If you want a good budget minded CPU cooler the cooler master hyper 212 is good to go, but that is something you can add later if you would rather leave it stock for now.

Edit: actually since you have the 9800 you may as well use it
