Hi dealer how about this: Fact 1: Windows will start to Page out long before we run out of RAM. Fact 2: RAM is pretty cheap these days and is getting cheaper by the day. Here's the deal ( pun intended ) I buy three gigs of RAM knowing full well Windows will only use an absolute maximum of two gigs. I then use one of those three gigs as a RAM drive and put the Paging File onto it. Question: Would my system fly like a bat out of hell ?
