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.

Tell us your HD's rpm. But I'm pretty sure is faster than mine so yeah, go for teh ram.

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

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.
