How would you configure it?: I'm having growing pains between my desktop, laptop, virtual server and HTPC where my desktop is running out of space, my laptop would benefit from SSD, my virtual server (VMware ESXi) can't run more than 2 to 3 VMs simultaneously and the HTPC was actually overbuilt. So how would you move around the following hard drives and memory among these computers and if necessary, on a very small budget, which parts should I consider buying?:
Desktop - main workstation, space is low - 500 GB hard drive, 8 GB memory (at max)
Laptop - crappy 5400 rpm hard drive, prefer SSD - 500 GB rpm 2.5" hard drive
Virtual Server - can only run limited number of VMs, space is low - 120 GB hard drive, 4 GB memory (max is 8 GB)
HTPC - over built, it really only streams video from NAS, will be replaced by Boxee Box in the near future - 4 GB memory, 500 GB hard drive
Extras/Spares - 500 GB hard drive, 80 GB hard drive
One obvious move is taking 2 GB from the HTPC and putting it into the virtual server, but after that move I can't think of the next one.
Thanks in advance
P.S. - Yes they're all SATA drives and yes they all use the same type and speed of memory.
