    Default Virtual Memory Or Not

    I've read somewhere u should not assign virtual memory if u have enough RAM (~2GB), coz virtual memory is a created space in HDD and HDD response lot slower than RAM, so if u have enough RAM then its faster not to assign virtual memory and let the RAM handle memory..
    any expertism comments?

    yeah virtual memory do take up HDD space. enable hidden system files view from folder options and look for pagefile.sys which is supposed to be in system folder. in xp with 2GB ram it is probably not crucial to have virtual memory. but some applications may crack if there is no virtual memory becoz they are programmed to use it.

    The area of the hard disk that stores the RAM image is called a page file. It holds pages of RAM on the hard disk, and the operating system moves data back and forth between the page file and RAM. On a Windows machine, page files have a .SWP extension.

    Basically, with a 2gb ram.. you really dont need to assign VM
