    The 4930k is better for video encoding, rendering etc. Get 16GB 2133 ram too.

    4930k needs lga2011/x79 mobo eg ASRock X79 Extreme 6.

    An R9 290 will need a 650W power supply. Get a good one per http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html

    eg XFX 550, Seasonic 620, EVGA Supernova 600 or Antec HCG 620M
