Alrighty, here's the deal. In a few weeks I'll be getting Windows XP Pro for a graduation present. With the money I already have I figure I'll install either a second 20-25 GB HD or a 128 MB RAM upgrade while I'm at it.

I currently have 18.6 total gigs of HD space and 128 megs of RAM. On one hand, I plan on storing much more in the way of software and especially music after I upgrade. On the other hand, I'm learning to use MAX and am already an avid (well kinda) Photoshop user, and I like to multitask at that.

I'll get to both eventually but the question is which first, or if I should just save what money I have and go for bigger hardware later on.

BTW it doesn't matter how much money I have, I'm not 100 percent sure myself oddly, I just know it's enough =)

Software can be reinstalled later. Go for the RAM.

Go for the RAM, you have 16 GB HD more than me already, and I get by.

Not really a kid. Not really an airbag. WHAT THE HELL IS IT?!? Who's asking? Are you French? An airbag is a safety device in a car that inflates during a collision and blocks you from smashing your head into the dashboard or steering wheel!

I can't see what you'd be getting that would take up 18 gig, so just go for the ram, then maybe buy a hard drive upgrade later.

Either way, I hate you. I want a good computer :P

Although, I am slowly convincing my parents to get me my own laptop (a really good one) for my birthday/christmas.

8th grade, Graduating middle

Don't ask why I get this kind of shit for graduating middle, I don't know but I'm not complaining

Zal: Not 100% sure, and I'm not 100% sure how to find out either since looking at the drive's properties doesn't tell me.

Just wait, that's what I do, and it's always the best strategy.

If you have a fast hard disk (7200 rpm) go for the RAM.
