I have a reasonably recent workstation running 11.10 with an AMD-Athalon (4 cores) and an Asus motherboard. I would like to spend about $100 to speed it up I have several options and was wondering how to figure out which would make the most difference with a budget of about $100.
- Bump memory from 4gb -> 8gb (or 12gb)
- Install a SSD boot drive
- Video Card
- Something else????
Actually what would be even better would be to have some sort of tool to tell me where the bottleneck is.
