My System Specs

Default i5 or i7 folding performance?

I'm going back and forth trying to decide on a new platform, trying to figure out cost/performance.

I game on my PC, but I also fold whenever not gaming. PPD is important to me, and likely worth the extra money for an i7.

How many PPD do you Intel folders get with a i5 2500K or 3570K, and how much do you get with an i7 2600K or 3770K?

I get that the i5 2500/3570K are all good enough for gaming, but if the i7 gets 10-15K more PPD, it would be worth the extra $$$ to me!

For comparison, my 1055t gets 10-15K ppd (depending on WU and GPU workload)

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
