If you can get all of that for £900, then I'd say that's quite the bargain. I just checked your components (some of them were close-estimates) against PCPartPicker, and it comes to £1,432.45.

Given the difference in price on PCPartPicker, I'd recommend having a look at the i7-5820K CPU - you'll need to swap out for a different motherboard and RAM, if you did go for it over the 4790K, but it's worth looking into if the price isn't going to be too different.

Otherwise, I'd say that should be a decent enough system that'll last you for a while...

I've been considering an "Overclocked Bundle" from Scan/3XS for a while, can pick up a decent motherboard, i7-5820K (overclocked to 4.2GHz/core) with Corsair H110i-GTX cooler, 16GB of DDR4-2666 Corsair RAM, all for £750.

I already have a decent case (Corsair Obsidian 800D) and PSU (Enermax 950W modular).
