Should i upgrade SSD or RAM?
-2 x 2GB ddr3 ram @1333(only runs at 1066 i believe, not sure y they include faster than supported ram)
-ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 - 1GB GDDR
-HDD: Seagate Momentus 7200rpm 500-GB Hard Drive 16mb cache
I need to choose between
-8 GB ram (both slots are full already) - $80
-ram and small SSD (for OS only) - $80 + $100ish
-large SSD for OS and prog files(120GB or so, i have a lot of necessary prog files) - $250ish
I use the laptop for school (Visual Studio, Office, web, adobe cs progs, etc) and games (SCII, COD, BFBC2, etc).
My boot time is bugging me, but i could also use less lag when multi-tasking and better performance in games.
The SSD is far more expensive so i only want to choose it if it will give a significantly larger boost.
Also, would installing all my prog files on an SSD change much? or would it make the most difference with the OS?
