    i bought a Seagte 1TB externall HDD on Saturday and my whole Vista 64 is backed up into it lol :D



    And i didnt notice Pillmonsters post first time...


    Dont mess with him :nerd: (i love this nerd face.)...

    The point is right, no offence. I try NPF and it works..it seems i dont use PF MUST applications so i dont have problem. and yes some games like DAWN OF WAR II asks for it but its matter of developer do it or not. as i posted u can disable that PF check with a shortcut command...


    Anyway guys. PURE RAM = PURE GAMING.:nerd:

    Yeah man I don't know what it is with Vista that makes it do that. I've heard that from other people too..

    Wonder if it would work with Win7 though?

    79 euros for 4GB? damn expensive..i total gave 100 euros to my Kingston slim 667 DDR2 rams...


    and Xp was good with 2GB.. with my 8800GT + 2GB ddr2 667MHZ and e6550, i had no problem for months.....Crysis was running good. but Vista? now way..Vİsta caches services or what ever to RAM. when u need the physical ram, it DE CACHE(or how u call it :D) and leave the ram for u. and i guess SUPERPREFETCH or what ever works great with pure ram. while starting ur PC those kind of service loads to ram and which gives to boost to ur OS usage..when i click to a windows related program or lets say SYSTEM it appears fast..how was the theory? windows Vİsta focus on the programs u mostly use and it makes them cached so when u want to start them they start faster than other programs that u dont use commonly.

    I use RamDisk Plus... a 2GB RamDisk just for the pagefile is a waste of RAM imho... With 6GB of RAM I would use a pagefile not bigger than 512MB.

    I have no pagefile.sys on any of my partitions... just on my RamDisk... as I said I use a small one (256MB) just in case any app absolutely needs a pagefile...

    This thread needs to get back on track, please.

    BF2 and RAM prices belong into a PM.

    I don't find disabling pagefile any faster than with it on. I don't find 4gb->8gb any faster either =(

    When you are in a game, for example, erm Left 4 Dead or Team Fortress 2, and you alt-tab, how long does getting back into the game take for you? I have like a 5~7 second black screen that doesn't get any shorter with more RAM or PF disabled or set to a small amount. haha

    Of course you'd still need RAM... You wouldn't be able to play a game and copy files at the same time or other multiple read/write operations... All memory load on 1 disk would cause serious slowdowns.
    Yes, for that reason it's not practical for most people. There are also other problems. If your PC crashes all the data stored in the pagefile on your RAM would be instantly lost.

    I lubz you all [​IMG]


    Yes, but If you had like 20 HDDS it would be ok....they'd have to be fast though....


    Why would that matter?
    With a PF on your hard drive you'd still lose whatever data was stored in ram....it's no different.
