I do so prefer my i7, if not for gaming, then at the very least for rendering.

Dam, wish I would have got an i7 since they're so rare and not in production any more. It's gonna be near impossible to upgrade now. I'll NEVER be able to get an i7. At the time I got my i5, i7's were only $100 more, I should have jumped on that because now they're gonna be $10000000 on ebay. I wish I wasn't poor.

You can't make these assumptions from some "leaked" system requirements that even may be false.
Until i see many games requiring an i7 for decent performance, i am sticking with my i5 750 which has handled every game i threw at it .

i5 3570k can handle all high end emulation?

Then it is still of use.

I'm 100% fine with this.

The new PC I'm building is for rendering, editing, modelling and gaming; so was on the fence about dropping in an i5 or i7. This just solidifies that decision.

I'm still using my Phenom II x4 945. Waiting for some of my pieces to die due to sea spray before I upgrade, but it's taking very long.
