    You could buy more memory modules and install them on your motherboard yourself.. it's not that difficult, you just need to make sure you're buying the correct RAM.

    As for hard drive you could buy an external, or again an internal and just fit it yourself.

    has a hell of a lot more ram and memory then my computer has, maybe just clean out your pc a little bit, if its slow you should back up your important files and re format it.

    You can do fine with a 7200 RPM hardrive, but for recording i recommend a 10000 RPM drive so you don't get close to getting in hot water. If this will be your recording drive do not install programs onto it, including a OS. While programs run in the background it interferes with your DAW's harddrive streaming and can result into audible clicks, pops, stutters, and dropouts.

    If you're computer's connected to the internet, you can use the very good Crucial.com website which will analyse your computer to find out precisely which RAM you need. (and give you options etc...)

    After that, you can shop around to find a good deal. I'd recommend not to buy cheap RAM, but to buy a brand like Corsair, Kingston, OCZ etc... make a big difference

    10,000 RPM is still too unreliable and too costly for that unreliability. If you want extreme speed an SSD (OWC Mercury Pro, if you can't afford one buy a hybrid like the Segate Momentous XT it will be cost very effective) for the OS drive with the programs and then the second drive make a 7200 RPM hard drive for recording directly too/putting your drum kits and crap on it.

    If you can't get the 7200 RPM drive internally use a eSata/USB 3/FireWire 800 external with 7200 RPM.

    As for RAM mashed&confused said all there needs to be said.

    Unfortunately, this all may not fix your problem depending on what your trying to record, the rest of your computer specs, etc. EX. If your trying to record 8 channels off a 003 into an old Pentium 4 with cue phones for both of them chances are it isn't going to run that nicely. If your just recording a vocal track, one at a time you should be fine.

    Try get some SSDs in there. Solid State disk which boost load time as it does not depend on the hardware as such of the hard drive. I got 2 in mine and music apps load super quick. They expensive though.
