I've overclocked it to a seemingly stable 4.2 GHz.

Folks have suggested the i5-4690, which I guess is in the same ballpark as the 4790. Being cheap, I was thinking that I could maybe get away with an i5-2400 instead (about 80 AUD on ebay), saving myself ~$200 and still being… okay… until it comes time to upgrade the motherboard (etc).

Those same folks have also suggested the GTX 1070 as the next big upgrade after an i5. Great minds.
