    Computer upgrade advice

    Hurricane Vortex

      Hi. I currently have: 


      HP Z600 Workstation

      Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5630 @ 2.53GHz X 4 Processors

      6.00 GB RAM

      NVIDIA Quadro FX 1800 Graphics Card

      Western Digital WDC WD1001FAES 1TB Hard Drive

      Windows 7 Professional

      Running Premiere Pro CS 5.5 & After Effects CS 5.5


      What is going to give me the biggest performance increase for the least amount of money?


      1. More Ram?

      2. An Extra Hard Drive?

      3. GPU Graphics Card?


      4. Something else?


      I know ideally all three, but which single upgrade will give me the best performance increase?
