Calculator result

Intel Core i7-4790K is too weak for AMD Radeon R9 Fury X on 1920 × 1080 pixels screen resolution for General Tasks.

This configuration has 13.0% of processor bottleneck .

When playing games your graphic card won't perform on maximum possible performances (won't be utilized to the maximum), because you processor won't process and deliver data fast enough. This theoretically means that utilization of you processor will be on maximum and the potencial of graphic card will not be completely used.

Bottleneck calculation for Intel Core i7-4790K and AMD Radeon R9 Fury X with screen resolution of 1920 × 1080 (FHD (1080p)) pixels for General Tasks)

Component utilizations

While running general tasks, processor Intel Core i7-4790K will be utilized 100.0% and graphic card AMD Radeon R9 Fury X will be utilized 87.0% .

Utilization of Intel Core i7-4790K and AMD Radeon R9 Fury X in General Tasks with 1920 × 1080 (FHD (1080p)) resolution)

Processor bottleneck is worse, than graphic card bottleneck, because utilization of your processor will be on maximum and it will throttle other programs that are ran in background. Also you won't experience maximal performances that your graphic card offers.

Solutions

You can resolve this by upgrading your processor or by downgrading your graphic card. Downgrading your graphic card doesn't make much sense and in that case is better to leave current graphic card in you computer.
