RAM and SSD upgrade pointless with this system?
So I am thinking about upgrading my system due to crashes running blender and skyrim creation kit (namely the heightmap editor). Currently I have win 7 32 but upgrading to 64x as we speak. So the hardware:
Processor: Intel e8400 core 2 duo 3.00 GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P
HDD: Western Digital wd64000aaks 640GB
My motherboard only supports 16GB RAM, I have four slots of 1GB right now, should I buy two 8GB, 4x4GB, etc, or does it even matter?
I was thinking about getting a primary SSD of ~60GB and using my HDD as storage, would I notice any differences in gaming/modeling?
And finally, will upgrading my RAM and my HDD even effect gaming/modeling with such a slow processor and older motherboard?
Also, if anyone has any suggestions about what I should upgrade please do share.
Thanks in advance
