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?

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
