Upgrading RAM & Hard drive in Inspiron E1705 is it worth it?



  • HI,

    Considering upgrading components of wife's Dell Inspiron E1705 prior to installing Win 7. Just wondering how far to go with it without overspending given realistic performance gains. Currently running XP pro with stock 1Gig of RAM and stock Toshiba MK1234 GXS 5400 rpm , 1.73 Core Duo CPU. Considering 4 Gig of RAM and a WD Scorpio Black 7200 rpm drive. Does this sound about right, or is it overkill given other limitations of this laptop

    Please help.

    I did not find the right solution from the internet.
