    More RAM will definitely help. And an SSD makes things start faster.

    But the difference between a standard 5400RPM and 7200RPM HDD is kinda negligible, so maybe invest in an SSD and RAM, if you can afford it.

    Upgrading to an SSD drive will speed your machine up faster than anything. You can always add some RAM a little later.
