if you don't plan on using programs that are able to fully utilize the 8 threads of the i7, then you should go with the i5 + ssd

I think I will go for the i5 combo, sorry I forgot to change it from discussion to question so no best answer. :(

and thank you both for your input.

For gaming I would go with the I5 200k and an SSD. What I did was use the SSD as a boot drive. I installed Windows 7 and all motherboard drivers onto the SSD and a regular HDD for everything else.
