The i3-4130 is a processor for only basic tasks. If you are playing games on any decent setting, the i3 is going to disappoint. The i5-4690K is a more typical choice for gaming. If you are not going to overclock your processor, you are probably wasting your money getting an i5 with the "k" SKU. Unless you are getting some sort of bundle deal with that specific i5, go for a cheaper, non-k i5 if you do not want to overclock.

i5 is fine for games. Most games will not even make full use of an i7. i3 would leave you wanting with modern games. Even 3 year old games may not like the i3.
