What would I need for my purposes? in New Builds and Planning Posted June 15, 2018 1 hour ago, brob said: Depends on what the extra memory will cost and how long you will use it. Are you using ssd storage? I priced it out and I'm looking at around $350-$450 CAD. Probably looking to get another 2-4 years out of my current machine (hopefully). I am using SSDs exclusively, got three of them crammed into various orifices in my laptop. Just filled the second unpopulated mini PCIE slot with a 500gb Samsung 860 EVO.
