With the Biggest Bang

I recently had a customer that came in to discuss a workstation upgrade.  He just wanted to make sure that he was running an optimal system for his needs.  He was trying between deciding on upgrading some hardware components or upgrading his entire system.  Computer hardware upgrades require many considerations including what you need to use your desktop system most for.
Different computer applications require different components to run quickly and without any hiccups.  Should you upgrade your RAM, hard drive, processor or video card?  OR what combination of these components would provide the biggest performance boost?

Choose the Best Upgrade for Your Computer

There is no such thing an as an upgrade that will benefit everyone in every situation. It all depends on what you use your computer for. If you do a lot of multitasking, or your work involves applications that require a lot of memory, for example if you run a lot of virtual machines, RAM is going to be a solid upgrade that will increase your efficiency. If you are a gamer, a new video card is more likely to increase the performance than ram.  Video editors on the other hand would probably bump up their efficiency with a faster, multithreaded processor. Check out a breakdown of possible upgrades and what they would be good for:
