I am looking for suggestions on a tool or where to look to try to speed up my win7 box.
Of course there are all those "optimize crapware" programs.

I use my server as a java development box and my java IDE in run/debug mode runs at about 1GB.

My PC has 4GB or ram, one SSD for work and raid 10 for the rest.
I was thinking of doubling my ram but do not want to just throw away money. When i look at the performance in taks manager my memory usage hovers around 65%. BTW i am running a pair of quad core processors.

Thanks for anyhelp on where to start looking.
