So this is my first PC build. I am an engineer and I needed something that I could run some more stressful drafting/rendering software (Rhino, Revit, Solidworks, etc.), a few games and the occasional Ableton production without seizing up. Luckily, I managed to buy most of the parts during black Friday sales so I was able to get it close to 1050 after all of the rebates and after sale discounts were said and done.
She is still a work in progress and I am sure I will be continuing to add parts here and there for years to come. I also plan on overclocking at some point (with the MPower Z97 and the 4790K it would be a waste if I didn't) to achieve faster model rendering times and game performance; all after I find myself a decent GPU (or two) of course, which is why I went with the bigger PSU.
And for all you gaming gurus out there, no it does not run Minesweeper; but it does run Morrowind ;).
Edit (1/8/15): So I finally got a GPU. I went with the Gigabyte G1 GTX 970. I originally wanted an MSI lightning but after stocks ran out and the price doubled I couldn't justify the purchase so I went with the GTX 970 and boy does this thing kick serious butt. I have graduated from Morrowind to Far Cry 4 and BF 4 on Ultra. I got lucky with my card as it is audibly non-existent (no coil whine, fan speeds keep it cool but lack the sound of a jet taking off, etc.).
Edit #2 (2/3/15): So I finally got into some overclocking. The M-Power Z97 makes it ludicrously simple to overclock the 4790K (so much so that I feel like I have too much power; the bigger they are the harder they fall). After stress testing and countless reboots I was able to push my processor to a nice comfortable 4.6 GHz on the EVO air cooler with controlled temperatures hovering between 70 and 75C. The moment I went to 4.7 I started getting brief spikes (I couldn't visually monitor them but real temp picked them up) in the mid 80s, and at 4.7 I got spikes into the 90s, both with hovering average temps under 100% load around 78C-82Cish. So, until the budget clears and I have some watercooling en-route, that nice stable 4.6 will be where she stays and I am just fine with that for now.
