basically as much as you want too..

It doesnt really slow your pc down, but at times where ur game crashes or something, its less likely to freeze

I have 1gb and i have 4gb of virtual memory, cause i got plenty of HD space

Microsoft say 1.5 x your installed RAM for an average system i.e. 1.5Gb for you.

You should use 1.5 times your physical memory, so 1536 MB. You should set both minimum and maximum to 1536. This way the file remains contiguous, which will enhance performance, and it will not have to dynamically shrink and grow, which would also affects performance.
