Don't worry about it. The default mode of operation is to use RAM before swap, so just let Windows manage the swap file and ignore the crap that surfaces every so often about setting it to 1.5-2X the amount of physical RAM. It's outmoded advice that was of marginal benefit at the best of times.
Just upgraded my memory from 4GB to 8GB. I don't want to pressure my CPU too much.
1. Is it possible to run my computer putting more work on my memory? (Maximizing the performance: Not really sure what I'm asking or saying)
2. Also what should my virtual memory (total paging file size for all drives) be set to?
3. I am also wondering what is virtual memory and how would it affect your CPU usage or computer performance in anyway?
So here's my computer specs right now:
Processor (CPU) : AMD Phenom(tm) II N660 Dual-Core Processor (3Ghz Each Core)
Current Memory: Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600)
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (build 7600), 64-bit
Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 6650M 1GB DDR3
I use my computer for gaming, surfing the web, running heavy applications like Adobe software's, and rendering videos.
