Re: How does this affect......
As Russel said, it can make a difference. It takes a little tax off the RAM, I've found. Whether or not that will help in gaming, it would be a modest improvement at most. If you are trying to change performance settings for XP to try and run a game better, than you are doing it for the wrong reasons (i.e. the game wouldn't run that well in the first place).
