On my i7 Sony Vaio F series laptop I just recently ordered a 180GB SSD, I also run Arch linux with Gnome3, given this the only other thing I can really see upgrading my laptop as far as speed goes is to go from my 4GB PC10600 to a 8GB of PC12800 RAM. Would this amount to a significant performance increase or not? I understand that everything else aside going from PC 10600 to PC12800 or simply going from 4GB to 8GB isn't a huge increase unless using very heavy software but what if upgrading both? I don't do *too* many memory intensive tasks other than running some games (such as in WINE) and running virtual machines for various tasks.

More RAM, better smooth run. Learn about the RAM disc.

8GB should be the min RAM : )
