for gaming the i5-4690 is the clear winner.. The FX 9370 would be better in multitasking, though you could get a xeon...

You could use a Xeon 1231v3 it's about $250. Basically an i7 without the igpu. It works in 1150 sockets same as the 4690.

Defiantly go with the xeon if possible!

Get the 4690k and an aftermarket cooler because even if you do not want to OC now, you may want to in the future. But of the 2 you selected, the i5 is the clear winner.

What is your budget? If you want to get a FX-9370 id stay away. Mind as well just get a FX-8350 and a decent air cooler and just clock it to match speed or be close.

Unless you plan on overclocking, I say the i5 (if not ONLY for the lower thermal envelope and much better single threaded performance)
