Default Um...

The general rule of thumb is 1.5 times the amount of physical ram. Or best yet let windows handle the pagefile size.

never let windows handle the size, it creates strain on your computer because windows constanly has to change the size of the paging file having the harddrive's bandwidth used on resizing the paging file.
