How exactly do you change the page file in Vista btw?
same as xp.
what you fail to realize is, vista and xp are doing a thousand things at once. putting the page file somewhere else (like another hard drive that's only being accessed once in awhile) is always beneficial. if you put it in it's own partition at the beginning of that drive, it will access it, even faster
btw despite what people think, a 10,000 rpm drive isn't that much faster than a 7200 one. if you want speed get a faster processor and more ram. I had a server with 6 15,000 rpm scsi hdds in raid 5. it read and write speed was tremendous, but in the real world it's not that noticeable
