The aggressive turbo modes are common to all LGA1156 chips at present, be they i5 or i7. It's LGA1366 based i7s that have less aggressive turbo modes.

Since LGA 1366 mainboards are expensive, it's basically a case of $200 i7-750 vs. $290 (going by Newegg prices here) i7-860. Both LGA 1156. Again, I'm just not sure the extra $90 for an additional 133mhz and hyperthreading is worth it.
