Im about to buy ASUS G53SW - SX080V - with the following specs :
Platform: Intel Core i-7 2630QM (2.0GHz Boost up to 2,93GHz) VGA: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M DDR5 (with 1.5GB memory) Memory: 4 GB DDR3 HDD: 640 GB SATA DVD Super Multi Display: 15,6" with LED backlight (1600*900) 16:9 Web Cam: 2MP Bluetooth 3.0 | WiFi 802.11b/g/n | HDMI | firewire | gigabit LAN VGA Out | 3 x USB 2.0 | 1x USB 3.0 | Card Reader Sound : SRS Suround sound with Altec(R) Lansing Speaker | Weight 3,3kg OS: Windows 7 Premium
My plan is to have it as a primary gaming machine for about 3-4 months until i am capable of amassing money to build a gaming system. Will use it to work too
My question is : should i upgrade the memory to add an extra 2-4 GB or buy a momentus hybrid drive instead ?
Thanks for your help!

More aboutextra hybrid drive
For gaming purposes 4GB of RAM is plenty. I'd go with the hybrid drive or an SSD to try and get a bit more performance out of it.
Dont go with either the extra RAM or the Momentus. Either go for an SSD or perhaps a Velicoraptor. Extra RAM will gain you nothing in the gaming department.
