I am soon having my first go at building my own computer (don't worry about that, I've got a friend to help!).

I've just got a question.

Can Windows 7 be installed on a machine if it is homemade and overclocking (overclocking is my main concern because I saw it mentioned somewhere else!?).

(for all versions of Windows 7 - not sure which version I'm getting - if the reply is different at least).

My components:
Intel Core i7 2600K 3.40GHz (@ 4.60GHz) Sandybridge CPU
Asus P8P67 DELUXE Intel P67 (Socket 1155) DDR3 Motherboard
RAM: Corsair XMS3 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel
Corsair A50 CPU Cooler
OcUK GeForce GTX 570 1280MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
Western Digital WD20EARS 2TB Hard Drive SATAII 64MB Cache - OEM Caviar Green
Coolermaster Silent Pro Gold 700W Modular PSU
LG BH10LS30 10x BD-RE with DVD±RW & LightScribe SATA Blu-Ray Drive
NZXT Lexa S Case

(oh yeah and if there's a problem with my components please let me know (i.e. they just wont' work together)! lol)

Thanks a lot!

Why on earth would you need to overclock a CPU that's already just about the rastest on the market??? I see absolutely no point in overclocking that at all!
