    don't bother about this with 4GB ram. and mostly useless.
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.

    It seems to help slightly with Photoshop. But the only reason I tried it was because my laptop has Windows 7 x86 on it, and I couldn't be bothered to reinstall the whole thing, so it was the only way I could use the entire 4GB of RAM.

    I can't comment on gaming performance because my laptop is a Pentium 6100 IGP, so I don't game on it except for Serious Sam.
    If you want to try it, Dataram's RAMDISK is what I use. It has the handy advantage of letting you save your contents to disk when shutting down so you can also have persistent cache, for example. Slows down boot a bit but operation is still snappy.
