With the setup you have an i7 would be the best course of action, but it really depends on what Mobo you have. Seeing as you have an AMD you'd probably have to invest in a new Motherboard if you wanted to get an i7

The i5 is the best gaming cpu for the $.  However the i7 can outperform it in some games, and multitasking with a bunch of apps.

 

If you want to spend less than 300 and have a very nice cpu and mobo, go with the i5.  Then liquid cool it.

 

Should note, the i5 4690k not the new series of junk cpu from intel.
