Upgrades for Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q893

I want to increase the performance in my Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q893

Crucial recommends this out of stock RAM kit @$37.99

8GB Kit (4GBx2)
DDR3 PC3-10600 • CL=9 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1333 • 1.35V • 512Meg x 64 • • Part #: CT3320409

How do I find it or equal elsewhere at comparable price?

Is the install easy? Tips?

    This one is supposedly made for toshiba models, but they are all the same.

    recommend you get one of these instead for $26 after the coupon:


    and yea its really easy for most models. You just take a couple of screws off from the bottom and pop the ram out. There are numerous videos on the interwebs.
  2. I have done a little research and have determined there are other components to consider upgrading to improve the performance of this Qosmio X505-Q893. I just don't know which will give me the most for buck.

    I am not a gamer. Most of my use for this notebook is multi-tasking with multiple documents, photos, apps and browsers tabs open simultaneously.

    I would appreciate suggestions as to what I should consider upgrading in addition to 8GB Ram

    The standard specs are:

    Operating System:
    • Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    Processor and Graphics:
    • Intel® Core™ i5-460M Processor - 2.53 GHz (2.80 GHz with Turbo Boost Technology), 3MB L3
    • Mobile Intel® PM55 Express Chipset
    • NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 460M with 1.5GB GDDR5 discrete graphics
    • Configured with 4GB DDR3 1066MHz (max 8GB) upgrade planned
    • 2 main memory slots. Both slots occupied.
    Storage Drive
