If you can afford the extra for the i5, I would go with that. I debated the C2D and the i5, and figured that the quad core would be the best deal and help to future proof my purchase a bit. I can tell the difference between my old C2D 2.66 Ghz PC and the 2.66 GHz i5 in the iMac when doing 3d renders and also with the minimal gaming I do.

I would get the system with the default 4 GB of RAM. You will have two RAM slots open, and can get another 4GB from someplace like Crucial for less (Crucial has a 4GB kit for $119.00).
