What performance gain would i expect to see when going from a 2.4GHz, 4GB RAM (2+2), 250GB 5400RPM system to a 2.4GHz, 6GB Ram (4+2), 128GB Falcon SSD (230/190mb/s)? (Ram is 1066Mhz)
In particular im talking Photoshop with Large images/many layers. If you have a percentage or some good benchmarks that would be great. I have seen some, but nothing that looks at large photoshop files or ones with many layers.
At this point, what is the bottleneck of my system? Previously I would say that my RAM was, as the RAM would always max out and my pc would lag like crazy (this is when working with large photoshop images).
Would a scratch disk be of much help? I could dedicate a whole 250GB 5400RPM Portable hard drive as my scratch disk connected over Firewire 800. Seeing as the SSD is so fast, is this really beneficial?
