I agree with Snowbunzz, for the money I7 isn't really that much better than I5.
Core i5 is pretty much the mainstream CPU line from the i-series.
i7 being the enthousiast line and i3 the budget line.
With that being said, certain i5 models are better than certain i7 models.
They shouldn't have any trouble running Rift.
