Well that explains the holes, but raises the question of why is he hollow (yes I know how 3D models work).

I have improved! I will one day succeed!



I am thinking of upgrading my PC...

grabbing a Samsung 840 120GB SSD

Asus Z87-C Mobo (cheapest board with the features I want)

i5-4670K (stock cooler for now then grab a better cooler some time next year and push overclock as needed, I don't expect too much due to the well known heat issues with Haswell but I am not too fussed I doubt games will be stressing it much and I don't do heavy video or anything. it's only $10 more than a 3570K for 10% better performance)

8GB G.Skill RAM (much faster stuff than the stuff I am using now)

Thoughts?

Get the Samsung 840 Pro instead. (No cheap TLC NAND, Longer warranty, faster, doesn't cost much more.)

In-fact what's your current system?

I'm kinda pushing the limits of what I am willing to spend on this upgrade already TBH, is the pro series really worth the extra $70NZD? Write speed isn't that important to me TBH especially coming from a mechanical HDD, and the random access difference shouldn't have a huge impact. But the much longer life of MLC is a nice advantage I have to admit I guess it might be worth biting the bullet for that.

Currently running off a Phenom II 955 (aparently I got a bad batch or something because it does not like to be overclocked) and a cheap ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 Mobo, plus 8GB of cheap 1333 DDR3.

I should mention I plan on replacing my 560 Ti (@900MHz) next year some time before The Witcher 3 hits. I would like to think that Maxwell will drop in time, fingers crossed anyway. The recent Nvidia driver bullshit has kinda made me consider jumping back to AMD but Witcher 3 makes me want to stick with Nvidia lol, I am such a sucker.

AMD CPU's are a bit more complex (And thus problematic) to overclock compared to Intel. (With the exception of Socket 2011 if you get into the nitty gritty.)
Heck, the culprit might actually be the motherboard or HT Link speed, Ram Multiplier, NB clock or lack of voltage, I'm yet to meet a Phenom 2 that couldn't be pushed to 3.8ghz or more.

As for the Ram, I say hang onto that, the only time you *really* notice a difference with faster Ram is with IGP's and APU's which are bandwidth starved anyway, use that money saved and channel it into the SSD.
