I've heard of people getting at least 2 gigs of ram and turning off vitual memory in win xp, thus gaining an enormous performance boost.
I was wondering about this, and I'm thinking that win xp uses around 300mb RAM to run efficiently, and other apps uses at most 1 gig of RAM, excluding bleeding-edge fps games like BF2 and FEAR.
Since I don't game on super high resolutions nor do any video editing, would I be able to do this? In other words, with 2 gigs of ram and win xp, does the memory recycle fast/efficient enough to allow stable comp usage with no VM enabled?
What are your thoughts on this?
