As church technology volunteers and staff, we live in a fun world that is super gadget and software oriented where we play with social media, mess with sound levels, and find creative approaches to new announcement videos. But we also live in a world where Christian theology is our worldview. And while I believe that God is all knowing and all present, I personally have problems when we try to overspiritualize something that might not be true. Case in point, technology that is powerfully and fully impacting our life today.
The one I built was an AMD A8 processor on FM1 motherboard. It was built two years ago and FM1 is already a "phased out" product. What platform (AMD or Intel) doesn't change too much? I want to build one that in two years, I can just upgrade the processor and need not replace the motherboard. Or there's not much I can do and after two years, the platform is already obsolete.
This computer is used for personal, Church and a lot of ministry work.
Now if you plan to get a system and put in an i5 now and upgrade to an i7 processor in 2 years that may be the best way you can upgrade performance in 2 years while spreading out the costs.
I have a feeling that in 2 years if you look at the price/performance ratio you will find it more cost effective to upgrade both your cpu and motherboard, however.
Good luck. I do hope you find a solution.
While they aren't ideal your current best bet may be intel LGA1155 Z77 chipset boards (granted they are 2 years old now). You'll probably want to find one that has added PCI support as it's not native on that chipset.
You could also wait till the end of the year when both companies release new architecture.

Currently member of the iStudyEBS steering committee. iStudyEBS, a division of Explorer's Bible Study, seeks to use the internet and technology in providing an in-depth Bible study to all people all around the world.
I am also working on our computer services business (computer repairs, desktop publishing, web, etc). I took Computer Engineering but only finished the first two years (I thought Computer Engineering was all about fixing computers, but no, it’s all about math!). I also took Theology and was only able to finish 3 years (got married to my wife after she graduated Theology),
I am an Evangelical Christian (or Born-Again Christian as others commonly know it), and I won’t hide it.
I am also pursuing on using technology and internet as an avenue or instrument for the Lord’s ministry.
