Probably low settings. Might have to reduce resolution to 720p.
That's a crazy rig! Of course you can most likely max it out! Get that thing verified when you get the chance!

If you're going to be doing heavy video editing, then the 4 extra threads of the 4790 will help. But only in that case. If you are only going to render 1-2 videos at a time for YouTube, the i5-4690 will do just fine.
You'll also want to take a look at the FX-8350, great performance in games and has 8 cores, which will help greatly when rendering videos. It's also a lot cheaper than the 4790, if overclockable and you won't need to change your motherboard.
