  1. OS = Windows 7 x64 SP1 Hi, I intend getting more RAM for my system, basically because I want to use a large ramdisk. When I do the upgrade I'll have 16GB of RAM. 10GB of that for a ramdisk and the remaining 6GB for the system. I'm thinking that it used to be the case that Microsoft recommended 1.5 times the amount of RAM installed for a page file. However, that advice was from the year dot and things have changed these days when people routinely install amounts of RAM that would have been unheard of years ago. Certainly for the last few years I've just set the page file to a fixed size equal to the amount of RAM installed and have never noticed any problems with that. So, my questions are: 1) With the amount of RAM I intend to install would it be safe to just disable the page file completely? 2) If it isn't advisable to completely disable the page file what would be the recommended mimimum fixed size for the page file? 3) Would disabling the page file lead to an increase in speed of the system? I think I should add that I don't do things on my system that really stress the system. Nowadays I just use my home computer for mundane stuff. Certainly I don't do high powered gaming.
