    The performance of a 4690K and 4790K in gaming is negligeable. The 4690K would perform better if it's clocked higher than the 4790. The difference is too little to notice, a few FPS at most.

  2. without thinking.... get the 4690k as its made for gaming.. and get a good motherboard with a price point of 150-200 dollars... that should be more than enough for you.
  3. Thanks,will be buying an i5 4690k
