CPU for high-end gaming computer?

I'm currently looking to buy a new computer. My budget is about 2200$ maximum but of course the lesser i have to pay the better. I want a computer that can be able to run games such as crysis 3, assassin's creed 4 black flag and bf4 on the higest graphics settings possible. I don't know much about computer parts. I know that a CPU is a part that processes instructions that it gathers from from decoding a code in programs and files. And i do know that having more "cores" is better. I don't know what all those numbers on stuff like Intel® Core™ i7-4820K Processor (10M Cache, up to 3.90 GHz) means at all. What does the M or the GHz stand for? I want to know what kind of cpu i would need for getting the computer that i need. Thanks for helping out if you deside to

    An i7-4770k or i5-4670k would be perfectly adequate for your needs.
  2. 10M is 10Megabyte and it is the size of the Cache of the computer, and the CPU performance is measured in GHz. For gaming you need an i7 haswell pocessor and it depens for the GPU, you can go with the fastest GPU from AMD or get 2 GPU`s in crossfire which give more performance but are more expensive.

    You don't need an i7 for gaming. An i5-4670k is really all you need.
  4. GPU: R9 290x
    CPU: i7 4770k and Corsair H100i.
    OC the 4770k.
