Extra Ram vs. Better Processor
by Trabadoor22 - 1/24/11 2:50 PM
This topic may have already been covered, but I don't see a search function on the forums so I thought I would ask. I am wondering in general for performance/speed which would be better to get extra ram or a better processor. I am getting a new computer most likely a mac in the next week or so and I will mainly be using it for web browsing, playing videos and music and streaming media. Here are my options. Thanks for any input.
1. iMac i3 3.2 Ghz 8G Ram 1TB HD ATI Radeon HD 5670 with 512MB
2. iMac i5 2.8 Ghz 4G Ram 1TB HD ATI Radeon HD 5750 with 1GB
