Can't decide whether to go with a high end motherboard and an i5 or a seemingly average motherboard and an i7-4820. The only reason why I looked at changing the CPU is that the i7 is going for a really good price ($15 more than the i5) at a nearby Micro Center. I can't quite afford a good LGA-2011 motherboard, so I wanted to ask if it's the second build is still more preferable.
