First time poster here, apologies if I'm doing any of this wrong.

I'm able to get everything in the build below for roughly $850-$900, I'm just wondering what the capabilities of a system like this would be? Would I be able to max out all (or at least most) games out right now? How fast would processing be? Anything that should be changed?

do you want to buy it second hand?

the build is a bit messed up,
i7 OC
with not-OC-able mobo
not dual channel ram
and weaker gtx 760 instead of gtx 770
still win 8 not 8.1

if you wonder what should be changed, use this build as reference :)  good luck

The main reason I chose the not clockable motherboard was price, same with the 760 vs 770, the extra $100 pushed it out of my budget.

The OS choice was just a quick one I picked quickly to finish the PC Parts build list, I plan on getting whatever the most up to date build is.

Is there a clockable motherboard around the same price range as the one I listed?

If I fixed the mother board issue, how would it be? How would its performance be? Gaming on it?

For the extra $100 roughly would it be significantly better of a build for that value?

you said you can get them under $900 while the pcp listed over $1000
so thats why i thought you bought it second hand
sorry if i break down the mistakes in the build, no offense
