Are the parts I picked compatible and can this rig be overclocked? How did i do with the parts? This is my first build. Any suggestions? I want to play any game at settings maxed out. EVERYTHING MAXED OUT. I have a 27 inch asus 1080 p monitor 2 ms. My budget is 900-1000.

stressing with OCCT your system won't hit that gaming with a OC'd cpu

but hey that pc power & cooling is a good choice.
