Default Performance tweaks.....

I just got an Mbox and although it has been very reliable, I am getting a couple less plug-ins that I did whith PT Free. So, first of all, is there any simple upgrades that I can make to my system to help that? And also, does anyone know how much horsepower I would need in a new Mac to get about a dozen RTAS plugins at the same time? Right now I am using an iMac 400 w/ 320 MB RAM and the stock internal drive.
The disk seems to be fine up to ten tracks (all I have put it through so far) But will I get anymore plugins by upping the ram or the drive? Or is that completly CPU related?

Thanks

Some more RAM and running the audio off an external FW drive will help, but maybe only a little. Really what you need is more CPU horsepower. To get a dozen "normal" plugins (not all reverbs), maybe like a 500 or 600 ? I'm not too sure on that. Maybe someone else can help out.

Yes, I am thinking that I need to just upgrade to a fater machine. Maybe and eMac. I think that should handle what I need.
Thanks
