I added a new category as I believe peripherals pay a factor in how good your pc is.

Why don't you disable paging file? you have 4GB RAM.

well when running a game like GTA IV with 4GB the page file really comes in handy. i am using about 3.75GB of my ram, and i have about 7GB for paging file and i am on windows 7. GTA IV is a mem hog.

I was only joking a 320gb paging file is a tad excessive I use to disable it on xp but on vista I do sometime need that extra headroom.
