    8 gb ram kit works great,

    they do make a 750gb 7200rpm 2.5" also i believe.

    i have the 1tb 5400rpm, its plenty fast for me.

    i do alot of photography stuff.

    Do you need 1TB or is 500GB sufficient? I tried to find some benches but couldn't but I doubt there is major difference in speed, the 500GB might be faster in random access. Also, there is 750GB 7200rpm which is a total beast

    Speed vs capacity. What's more important to you?
