While looking for a used budget graphic and gaming computer, I picked up an Alienware aurora for $500. It has pretty good specs. but I have about 100-200 to do a minor upgrade and was wondering where to put the money.
yea i have 8gbs and never seen it go past 4gbs ( i had illustrator+photoshop+avg scaning+downloads+game open)
Ram is dirt cheap pick up an 8 GB kit 2 sticks @1600 speeds G.Skill $50 OCZ Vertex 4 128GB is $100. Later down the road you can pick up a more highend gpu when you got some cash, definitely wait for AMD 8000 series or 700 series from Nvidia.
6GB of ram is fine, no need to swap that out. An SSD at that budget will make much less of a difference than a new GPU.
