Default Disabling pagefile

I've always heard you should do this if you have a nice PC, ex: 2GB

Now, is this how I should have it setup? Or should I check "No page file" ?

Default Re: Disabling pagefile

The page file is basically something you can leave as is.. and ussually you don't need to worry about it. When your system runs out of availible RAM, the system moves the least used applications to the 'Page File' which is actually hard drive space reserved for 'virtual memory' when its needed. Its often slower and is not a primary source of memory.

My advice is to leave it as is.
