Current Opinions on Pagefiles?

Recommended Posts

What's everyone's current opinion on pagefiles or 'swap' files at the moment. Seperate physical drive or same as your OS.

 

More than your RAM less than your RAM.

 

Or, controversially no page at all.

 

This is all with reference to a system with 1gig of RAM.

 

Tnx

I really don't know if theres a "best" way to run the page file.

 

But I run the page file off of a separate drive and click custom size and 500/500, and I'm also useing a gig of ram.

 

Seems to work real good for me anyways.

i use a separate partition if i dont have a separate physical drive.

 

i always make my min/max the same based on the RAM I have.

 

1024MB RAM = 1024min / 1024max page file

 

using a gig of RAM means you wont be accessing the page file much unless you doing 3dstudiomax or lots of photoshop or other things that generate 1GB+ files.
