i'm thinking of trying to improve my computer a bit. I mainly use it for Adobe programs and C4D.
I have now a I7 950 at stock (3,06ghz), asus p6t se, 6 gig ram in triple channel (3x2), gtx 460. At work have one similar pc but with 12gig ram, and i feel the ram difference from one to another when working in AE or multitasking.
I want to spend the minimum possible, since i'm thinking in buying another one in the next 6~8 month's.
So i was thinking one of the two options bellow. Feel free to say your opinion or suggest a best move than this two bellow.
Overclock the CPU 3,06 to 3,6 (more if possible)
Sell the 6gig ram i have, and put 12gig ram (the vendor of this pc, said this motherboard doesn't "like" cpu overclocks whiteout having some empty slots, and if slots full, it can be unstable)
CPU stays at stock (3,06ghz)
Add more 12gig ram to the 6gb = 18 gig ram total (all mb slots occupied)
Also, an ssd for o.s. and applications, do you think it will improve anything, or just loading times of the apps?
Thanks in advance
