ssd or ram?

hi my friends.

I have a Lenovo laptop(g510 corei5-4g-500). I use it for programming
With Windows 10, most of the RAM is over 95%.
To increase my speed, I'd add better RAM or SSD?
What brand is the best RAM compatible with my laptop?

Re: ssd or ram?

An SSD will help mosly with start-up and shut-down, where you read and write many small files.  It can also help with programming tasks if you do huge builds with large make files.  If RAM usage is high, you probably will gain more by adding memory.  Only RAM from Lenovo is guaranteed to be compatible, but most brands work.  Avoid sticks with the word "value" in their type.  Everyone has their favorite types; I like Corsair Vengeance.
