unless you plan to manually manipulate the swap file, leave it UNLESS you have a physically seperate HDD. Also, its faster to NOT let windows manage the swap file size, instead set the lower and higher to the SAME amount. Setting it to a static amount (same on both) is better because windows will not have to constantly reallocate and assign virtual memory addresses when ever the swap file params change sizes. So, if you set it to different sizes or let windows do it for you then it will slow the system down somewhat. Granted, it may not be a large amount if you have a very fast system and HDD, but it might.

If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
