Re: What's better for Mame\Dolphin\pcsx2 between an I5 and an I7?

Intel CPUs based on Haswell architecture will be massively faster than an old Core 2 quad in emulation performance, regardless of clock speed.

Just make sure you are getting Haswell (ix-4xxx) and not the older Ivy Bridge (ix-3xxx) or Sandy Bridge (ix-2xxx), because there is a large jump in emulation performance between Ivy and Haswell.

Dolphin benchmarks: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AunYlOAfGABxdFQ0UzJyTFAxbzZhYWtGcGwySlRFa1E#gid=0

Notice how Haswell, at various clock speeds, dominates the top of the chart, taking the top 7 spots. The Haswell i5 is around 3X faster than the Core 2 quad in Dolphin.

Also, you mentioned Cyber Cycles, so I tried it and it runs at full speed on my Haswell i7.
