    My laptop now has 704MB of RAM (plus the 64MB for the shared graphics) and I was wondering whether in reality I should now disable virtual memory. I guess 704MB is more than enough for my needs and a bit of light gaming. Will disabling it make any difference in performance?

    Bottom line: The more ram you have the bigger your virtual memory will/should be!

    which is the very reason that windozz is faster when you add more ram even if you haven't increased your workload
