How is an SSD better? They're generally more reliable and much faster. A single SSD would beat out a pair of RAID 0 Velociraptors. Anything installed to the SSD would load faster. For example: I have an average nothing-special SSD in my laptop, and it boots from POST to Windows desktop in ten seconds.
The i7, on the other hand, has HT over an i5. However, games are not optimized to take advantage of the +4 extra threads. Usually the only realm you'd see a performance boost from when choosing an i7 over an i5 are CPU-heavy media editing applications, e.g. Photoshop and Premiere.
