Hi, I'd like to summarize my research. Objective: Better performance. Options to upgrade with the best value for money at this (or +2 months) time. (So, 16 gb of ram for $1600 is NOT an option for 1 or 2% increase of speed.) If somebody _needs_ for example 16gb of ram, Im sure they have money to spent without blinking an eye, and also they know they need it. So leave this scenario. Also leave question "If I need it", please. Let's just focus what is the best for getting better performance and spending $2000 for upgrades. 1. Ram What: 2x4GB DDR3 1333MHz CL7 ~$120 Example: http://www.avadirect.com/product_details_parts.asp?PRID=20108 1. Hard drive? What: 128-256gb ssd 6gb/s ~ $320 (for 128gb) Example: http://eshop.macsales.com/item/OWC/SSDMX6G120/ Why: Yes, it's a bit pricey, but if you're looking for performance there's no reason to buy not so much cheaper ssd 3gb/s which is two times slower than 6gb. If you don't have $320 - wait till price goes down. (At the beggining, when I opened "new post" link I just wanted to just ask for your opinions, but decided to tell what I know/think I know, then ask for correction if Im wrong.. ) So. Am I right?
