I think an i7 is only necessary over an i5 if you want do real time rendering or hardcore video encoding.

Then how come my i5 has 2 cores and 4 threads?


Cause you probably have a laptop i5 or one of the old i5-6xx.

The 2500k will handle Wii and PS2 emulation perfectly. I haven't overclocked mine at all and I can run any game I've thrown at it in Dolphin. I get constant 60 FPS on any game I've tried with DSP LLE (which knocks performance down, but is necessary for a lot of games) at 4x internal resolution (although this is more dependent upon your video card).
