Since you will be gaming, you need iPad 2014...
That's a bit melodramatic. I'm on the iPad 3 and I've yet to find a game that doesn't run fine - and the only feature I can think of that I'm missing out on is Airdrop - which is pretty unimportant - especially when I've got the Flick app.
That said, if you can hold out, the next iPad will probably have 2gb ram.
Don't hold your breath for an iPad pro though.
