Hi I'm trying to build first PC but I'm not sure on some of the parts. I will be using it for gaming and trying to run games maxed out. I was wondering if the i7 was overkill for a gaming PC and I really need help with choosing a mother board. Thank you

You should switch out the 4790k with a 4590k and use that saved money for a 120GB Samsung 840 Evo for a boot drive while still keeping your HDD for storage. Also, for a motherboard the Asus Z97-Pro is a solid choice that will allow you to upgrade to the Broadwell processors when they come out or if you even decide to do so.
