Lives for gear
My advice would be, it's always better to have redundant power and not use it, as opposed to possibly finding you need more power and not have it. So if you can afford the i7 I would go for it. As there is no way to upgrade the CPU.

For tracking the most important spec on the computer will be a fast hard drive. If you plan you plan on multi tracking then the extra CPU may help, but an i5 would probably cope with that fine. The i7 would probably be most beneficial be to playback of multiple tracks, when you are mixing, and or adding parts.
