Default Alternator or batteries?

Im just wondering if i should upgrade my alt first or add my battery bank first. The alternator would be a 320 amp singer. Batteries would be yellowtops. I wont be able to upgrade both at the same time so which would be the better start?

what is your current alt rated at? how many watts are you trying to run? why yellow tops?

well how many yellow tops can u get for the price of an alt? if u can get 3 yellow tops for the price of the alt i would get 3 batteries. but if not i would get an alt.

if the yellow top batterys cost more the 100 each new i would go with XS or battcap or a car audio battery. shit u can find deka 31s for 200 each new most places.
