Okay, so I've just gotten a new job and I can finally afford to spend some cash on myself so I decided to get a new computer. I set my budget at 800-850 bucks and I've been looking around. But, it has been forever since I've built a computer so I need some help on a build, plus I have a few questions. Like, could I be able to overclock at this price? Or would it not be worth it? And is intel now the CPU leader for gamers?

You can overclock that system some, that CPU is the gamers choice (the 3570k was, but this is next gen), That card is already good and can be overclocked (covered by EVGA warranty) to make it a little better. I wouldn't overclock unless you're unsatisfied with the performance. Overclocking in some cases grants massive gains but here it would only be about a 5-10% boost.

What ever you do just make sure you get a quality Power Supply with good review and from a reputable Brand (such as seagate or corsair) If you get a cheapy power supply you can burn your system up.

Seagate is a storage company, and that is a Corsair PSU.
