Used for gaming mainly, I use my MBPr for schoolwork.
Recently swapped out the GTX 970 with a GTX 980, updated pics coming soon.
Sorry to break it to you, but don't you think a 4790k is a bit overkill if your just going to game on this machine?
Even so... 1200 for a computer with an i7 and a 970? Not bad.
Nothing is overkill
I also do video and photo editing.
I do recognize it as a bit of overkill, but I figured why not just get an i7 just to have a newer CPU.
Will you be overclocking? Probably not necessary but it's adds a day or so of tinkering.
I am considering it....
