Default i7 mobos, future upgrade

I've been looking at i7 mobos as I'm planning to upgrade to one eventually, however being only 17 and have no job at the minute, cheap parts is a fairly high consideration. I'm mostly just wondering how well a cheap board such as this
ASUS P6T SE iX58 Socket 1366 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard - Ebuyer
will OC?

Edit: Lol, just read the comments and apparantly someone has it up to 4GHz easily so that answers my question

Desktop i5-4440 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - EVGA GTX970 - 4x4GB 1600MHz - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB - Be Silent Base 800 - 3TB+1TB+640GB
Laptop i7-3740QM @ 2.7GHz, 2x4GB 1600Mhz, GT640M, OCZ Agility 3 120GB
Smartphone HTC One M8 - Sense 7 - 6.0

the p6t was the prime board for a while until other companies got their ducks in a line and put out high performance boards. that's a good one.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.
