Sodaen, are you talking about the RAM? "2000 megabytes to 4000 megabytes"? If you are talking about the RAM's, there is no need for 4GB of RAM if you're just going to use your computer for some gaming, surfing web, chatting, and such. 4GB of RAM is only required if you're planning to do video editing, and some crazy photoshopping. Otherwise, there is no need to get 4GB of RAM.

I also recommend for good gaming, change virtual memory from automatic swap to custom from 2000 megabytes to 4000 megabytes.
I don't agree. The less paging file it uses, the better. Simply beause RAM is much, much faster than hard drives are.

I have paging file completely disabled on my PC (I have 2GB RAM, and am running XP Pro with SP3)

For example, If I alt+tab out of a game, it's really fast getting back to the desktop. Most of the time, it's almost instant.

Yeah it is arguable, and won't help for every game. I just know games that "randomly create maps" such as Command & Conquer take more kindly to it. It's still not very good.

I guess if you're computer was super sweet, then you wouldn't have to worry about it, I only have 512 megabytes of RAM. I gotta find abstract methods unfortunately.

Also, it aint all that bad if you got a decently fast, constantly defragmented hard drive. There's a lot of things to take into consideration. In most areas I do not recommend such a large fake RAM cache.

Aint no doubt in my mind dude. Well, for me, I don't really play intense games. I don't like those graphic intensive games. I just like to build a city and tycoon off their work. Gotta upgrade for Settlers 4 though, that's a game I'm waiting for boy.
