I would take the 4790K but you are definitely getting ripped off or just building a system irregardless of price because even if I choose the way too good parts it comes down to this for 6700K:PCPartPicker part list

That's good 600 AUD cheaper than what you had there and can it be made even for less. It's 32GB RAM too, not 16.
Plus that extra 20-25% MT power from HT is not worth the extra +100 USD. And if he does need MT power better build a E series system with X99 and 6800K or 6850K or their predecessors or a Xeon.
My friend is the one that selected the parts he wanted as per first post. I could make it cheaper myself with changing parts up like you have.
However these are the specific parts he wanted & you will find it being a stretch to find cheaper.
ASUS Maximus VIII Formula Motherboard
Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (4x4GB) DDR4
Intel Core i7 6700K
Anyway have given said mate an update about the 4790K being the seemingly good choice to go per the responses. If he changed his mind & doesnt want it anymore, might even nab it myself! Replace my X58 System or use for something else
