I would use "The Default: A dynamic swap file on the same partition and physical hard drive (usually C: ) as Windows. "
I have exactly 512. I once tried disabling SWAP completely, but I quickly ran out of space. I usually have about 800 MB total in use including the page file and the physical RAM. I multitask to the extreme. But if it's really that useless, maybe I should rearrange the drive a bit.
