stock bto 27 iMac or upgrade ?

I want to order my new 27" iMac but im wondering whether there will be a big performance boost if I got to a i7 3.4ghz ? instead of the i5 3.2ghz ? and is it worth upgrading the graphics card to a gtx 680mx ?

Alls im going to use it for is editing and uploading to youtube alot of graphics work on photoshop and illustrator ect and maybe some motion design on after effects.

Will the i5 and gtx 675mx do me well or will I need to fork out more money ?

I just want to know your opinions on this if you were in my situation ?

'future proof'

I think if you want to 'future proof' it may be worth it to upgrade the video card.

I did upgrade to i7 and got a larger drive with fusion so I don't have to tinker with additional products, but that is just me.

Didn't get extra RAM, as I listened to the experts here and will order after market when I save up more money.
