Windows – Is SSD better than Superfetch

ssdsuperfetchwindows 7

So I'm building a new machine… Which configuration would give me a faster machine:

  1. 8 Gb of RAM
  2. An SSD, but with 4 Gb of ram

Should I add more memory (8 Gb instead of 4Gb) to better make use of superfetch, or should I invest in a good SSD drive?

I doubt that RAM is the bottleneck, unless you are running multiple VMs or something like that.

Read/write speeds are most likely the bottleneck on any modern machine, so getting a faster drive is usually the best solution.
