The 10,000RPM drive alone will make a difference in my opinion. If you have the money, they're good drives to buy. A bit on the pricey side, but worth it.

*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?

like ISOwner said, the 10,000 rpm HD will make a huge difference. as for the 4 gigs of ram, yes it will make a difference in performance unless you have a shit psu.

I agree with the 10K RPM drives. no matter what you do, you'll notice a difference. As for the 4 Gigs over 2, it really depends on what your doing. If your not doing real high-end gamming, or other high-end software, the impact you see would be minimal.

yep, the 10k drives will speed everything up, A LOT, like celegorm said though, of your not doing highend gaming, or not using very intense programs, 4 gigs would not be a smart investment, i say go for the 10k....
