H81M-S2PV Motherboard

Hello guys!

I have a H81M-S2PV motherboard. My current specs are: i5 4440 and GTX660. I am thinking of upgrading to a i7 4790k and GTX970, in addition to a better PSU, SSD and a CPU cooler. My question is:

Will my motherboard limit my better CPU/GPU. I know that my motherboard is a very cheap board, but I am asking if the CPU/GPU would run better on lets say a £300 motherboard? I am also thinking to overclock my new CPU from 4.0GHz to 4.5GHz, will this motherboard allow me to do that? And achieve the EXACTLY SAME effect as I would on an expensive "gaming" motherboard?

Another question would be:

I have a 8GB stick of ram running at 1330MHz, software like CPU-Z or Speccy shows that it runs only at half of that. Checking in the BIOS it said my RAM is 1330MHz indeed. Is my RAM not running at full potential then?
