My System Specs

Default Upgrade my PC: 4GB DDR3 or xfire 5770

I'm deciding between another 4GB ddr3 of memory (currently have 4gb ddr3 1333) or another ati 5770 (currently have XFX 5770 OC) to crossfire with the one I have.

Which one will give me better performance for my system? I mainly use my PC to render videos and edit large detailed pictures.

Think an SSD will be a better upgrade in your case. Since you don't game, adding another 5770 doesn't make sense. Another 4GB of RAM won't do much either.

well if you do editing of any kind then the more ram the better but if this is just a basic machine then an ssd will be a huge upgrade. jmo
