    Usually for optimum performance, it is better to keep just the double amount of your ram into pagefile settings.
    but as you have 4GB of ram, you cant afford 8Gb of space from your system drive usually. So i suggest you keep settings to system managed size!

    by the way do you actually feel the difference of having 4GB of Ram?? I have 1 GB and find it pretty suitable for all my needs. But still looking for 2GB!! and thats the limit.

    4gb of ram hurts your latency because it has to work thru 4 sticks. Dont have the link off hand, but optimal is 2gb in 2 sticks (not 4 x 512mb). There just isnt anything out there yet that can use 4gb.

    Re page files, some applications will not work without a page file regardless of how much ram you got (Photoshop).

    thats what Dual channel helps to overcome alanm, it helps to overcome the high latencies that using large amounts of ram cause :)

    hmm... in this case would be it quad channel though... as 2 sticks are dual channel.. so 4 sticks would be quad channel... it works and makes sense in theory... but we all know its not the case :p

    roar 10 characters is not cool, especially when I type in like 20 chars and it still wants more. WTF that's like 40 and it still won't let me post. omg I figured it out. You can't use parenthesis, it counts them and all insided as 0

    Windows XP Pro does not support 36bit pae. Windows Server Enterprise does though..

    to get all 4gb you need 2 things working together:
    1. a 64bit o/s (or server 2003 32bit enterprise, but then more then 4gb is paged)
    2. a bios that properly supports memory hole remapping.
