My mother just bought me a mostly intact computer for 10$. Pretty sweet deal, it comes with a case, motherboard, RAM, maybe storage, and windows 7. No processor or GPU, I don't think. I don't have the system on me, so for all I know, the motherboard or power supply is bad.

The items marked as zero dollars are the parts it comes with
I did some quick searching and the best processor I can get without needing a BIOS update is the I7-2700k. I was thinking a used GPU. Something powerful and cheap. I want it to be at least better than a 750 ti. Though, Getting a 1050 or RX 560 may be a better option.
I don't think the 2700k comes with a stock cooler, and I have no idea if this motherboard is capable of overclocking, or if it works.
I don't have a budger per-se, but I do not want to spend too much on any one part. The case is old. I have to take a look at it, but it might need replacing. But again, it might be nice to have an old case.
What are some ideas that you guys have? I do want this thing to look pretty cool.
