    I noticed this a couple days ago and so far it has me stumped:

    I've set my swap file to be 576MB (1.5 x 384MB RAM), yet when i look at it in the windows task manager it says that my swap file is 945MB. Or is that just displaying my RAM plus the size that i've allocated to my swap file? And if so, then why does it display bot my RAM and the page file in Diablo II: Lord Of Destruction? When i look at the resources being used, from in game, it shows RAM used (eg 200/384) and swap file (200/945). it would seem to me that D2 would not pick up both for the page file. any ideas?

    Did you set both the minimum and the maximum to 576 Mb or just the minimum ?

    I have both set to 576, yet it changes the size anyway, apparently.
