Pretty much, thats what the two registry keys mentioned above do, however XP will always need *some* page space on the hard drive.

Intel core I7 920
6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
Noctua nh-u12p
Corsair HX520
Antec 300
Samsung 1TB F1 Spinpoint
Samsung SM2443BW 24"

This might sound like a dumb question but, where exactly will I see the performance gain after I do that "DisablePagingExecutive" registry tweak? I just want a way to measure the performance before and after the tweak to see what it did for me.
