I've had one fail - one in hundreds that I've used or sold or put into service. It died instantly and it was an Intel Engineering Sample (not for the retail or regular public).

i5's and i7's are pretty decent CPUs. OP - do you know if you need cores or clock speed?
Multitasking will be rampant I assume this means the more cores the better right?I'm on the verge of buying AMD Six Core Fx-6100 3.3 Ghz on the ASUS M5a78l-m Lx motherboard

In general more core the better. However, the application must support it in order to use multiple cores. It is not a given. For example, TradeStation up to 9.0 does not support multi-core. When the overall CPU usage reaches 13%, charts start to freeze. Basically the "orchart.exe" process only works on 1 core, works it to death while the other 3 cores remain in idle. You should check with your trading software vendor.
