I was hoping for a new tower, but i'll give apple the benefit of the doubt before the big break-up (may need some marriage counseling though). I just ordered 8 gigs of ddr2 667mhz - that will bring me to a total of 14 gigs. I am hopin my Camera Raw files will rez up faster when tethered into Capture One. After that i may get an ssd drive, although i don't want to put too much money into a relic of 2006. Think it will help?
