Scrap any previous news of a computer upgrade. I decided to go ahead and build myself a whole new one. Since the motherboard and HDD of my old PC were both acting up, I figured it was time for a real upgrade.
My new computer has a 650w power supply unit from Corsair, powering a motherboard from Gigabyte and is packing an i7-3770K and an overclocked Gigabyte Geforce GTX 680 (also known as the Windforce Edition).
I call it: STEALTHGLADOS.
At first she did have something of an overheating problem, mainly due to the stock Intel heatsink and fan being of very poor quality. As a result I was forced to get a new CPU cooler. I went for the Corsair H70 Core Liquid CPU Cooler.
Full specs here:
Case: Coolermaster Centurion 5 II BLACK.
PSU: Corsair HX650
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z22X-UD3H (LGA 1155)
CPU: Intel i7-3770K (OCd at 4.1 Ghz)
CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro H70 Core
RAM: 2x 8GB Corsair Vengeance (16Gb)
Graphics Card: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 680 OC "Windforce" Edition
Storage: 2x 500 GB Samsung SSD
Now for some epic gaming and modeling.

That's about it. Have a nice day!
