[R] SSD vs RAM upgrade

I have several lab computers that frequently lag/crash with R apparently due to low RAM (they're all 8 GB)

I put in a request to up the RAM to 32 GB on a few, but my tech support is suggesting an SSD harddrive upgrade instead of the increased RAM.

Any suggestions on the better approach (SSD harddrive vs increased RAM to help R chug along)?

Thanks much - John
