You've already got 2 gigs of RAM, so you won't see too much of a difference. It really only helps in most cases if you have 1 gig or less.

wellit dosent actually haver anything to do with memory , windows uses the flash drive as high spped cache which can be acessed quicker than data from a hard drive so it speeds up vista cos vista can acess the files in much less time than if they where on a hard drive

Ahhh I see I used 3.7gigs of my USb its just flashing, I guess it means it is working but no noticable difference. I guess it makes a difference for a low end computer.

I use roughly 300MB from my USB flash drive and it makes a little bit of a difference, not much but it does seem to make things load a little bit quicker.
